Students Slam It!

On Thursday, May 2, 2013, students from Payson Junior High School participated in a school wide Poetry Slam Competition. The students who advanced to this level were chosen by their peers and teachers to represent individual English classes-they “won” their class slam to compete in the school slam.

With over 70 students participating, the competition was fierce! The majority of students read original poems that were packed with creativity and emotion. The event was very entertaining for all who attended. Because of all the incredible performances and well-written poems, the judges had a difficult time deciding the winners-but they made the decision.

The Top 15 winners who will advance to the Nebo School District Slam are as follows (in no particular order & pictured above): Tyler Haroldsen, Taylor Olsen, Emma Spencer, Perla Barreda, Caili Bogan, Grace Wilson, Savannah Smith, Bryan Hedelius, Andrew Bean, Isabelle Malloy, Katelyn Orcutt (not pictured), Danielle Corbett, Natalie Schulze, Sarah Deeb, and Amy Pouliot.

The District Slam will be held at the Salem Hills High School auditorium on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00 pm. Good luck to all students who will represent our school and congratulations to all students who participated!
