Once again, the poetry inspired all in attendence. And as expected, the competition was tight: another close match between Point Arena, Anderson Valley, Fort Bragg, and Mendocino. The old Pangea building was filled to capacity, and everyone was listening as the youth spoke of their pain, joy, fear, and laughs.

More than an amazing slam, this year's slam also served as a scouting ground for the Oakland East Bay Symphony's Words & Music Project, who selected the Mendocino County High School Slam to join 6 other California Counties in a statewide search for new youth voices.
