Power of Words Poetry Slam – 2015

The Love What’s Real Writing Challenge was an opportunity for Idaho’s middle school, junior high school and high school students to answer some important questions: Why is it important to be yourself in a relationship? How can strict gender roles harm our relationships? How can you end a culture of unhealthy and abusive relationships?

This Challenge was your opportunity to write about real relationships, real social change, real expression and we couldn’t be more impressed with all of the submissions!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Challenge, the following individuals have been selected to have their work published!
