We are pleased to announce the judges for our WORD - The Front Line Semi-Finals Heat #1 this coming Saturday August 3rd at the Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall.
We are so excited to have some incredible poets, artists, and community figures on our judging panel, who are so kindly gifting their time, talents and expertise. This event could not happen without them! Judging a poetry slam is no easy feat, so we wish them all the best!
Without further ado, here are your judges for HEAT #1:
At the start of the year 40 high school teams from around Auckland came together to compete at the Word - The Front Line Regional Heats. From there we took the top 14 teams on an incredible journey of poetry, community, leadership, and growth.
7 of those teams will now compete at Semi-Finals #1. The top 3 teams from each Semi-Finals heat will advance to the Grand Slam to battle for the title of 2019 Grand Slam Champs! Get your friends and family along to support our young poets as they step up their own front lines to slay their giants.
