"PART TIME POETS" SHARE THEIR VOICES AT POETRY SLAM

Barstow’s newly-formed spoken word team, “Part Time Poets,” placed second in the first round of a citywide poetry slam competition at Rockhurst University on Monday, Feb. 25.
Jia Tucker, junior, and Maddie Browning and Meghana Lakkireddy, sophomores, performed individual and group pieces and earned a total of 111 points from the judges, just a point behind first place winners and reigning champions from Lincoln Prep. Tucker scored one of only two perfect tens of the evening with her poem, "New Resolutions." 
 
 
"Part Time Poets," will compete again at the Kansas City Public Library Central Branch on Tuesday, March 5th at 7:30 p.m.
