What is a slam?

A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by memebers of the audience. Typically, the host or another organizer selects the judges, who are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets' content and performance. The high score and low score are dropped and the rest are added to give the poet their score for that round. the scores are added across the 2 rounds and a final score is tallied and the top 3 scores win cash prizes.

1st place: $20
2nd place: $10
3rd place: $5
