We are excited to announce that the 2016 Red Carpet Poetry Slam will take place on Thursday, February 4th at the School of the Art Institute Ballroom. Doors open at 5.30pm and the night will come to a conclusion at 9.00pm.
The Red Carpet Poetry Slam is America SCORES Chicago’s annual gala fundraiser event. The Red Carpet Slam celebrates the year’s success while raising the support which allows America SCORES to continue offering its free after-school programming to Chicago Public School students. Mingle with America SCORES supporters and stakeholders at a cocktail reception, and peruse our silent auction selection.
The Red Carpet Slam features original performances by select 3rd-8th grade poet-athletes, chosen based on their performance at November’s Community Poetry Slam and their commitment throughout the year. From there, one student will earn the right to go to America SCORES’ National Poetry Slam in New York City.
The Calliope Award
Each year America SCORES recognizes select community members with the Calliope Award, honoring them for using their voice, resources, and talents to make a positive impact on America SCORES and the communities we serve.
