Great Fall Season, Denver!

This is the final week of programming in Denver and tonight's Poetry Slam was evidence of the hard work our poet-athletes put into their writing sessions!

America SCORES Denver's 12th Annual Poetry Slam! was held November 8th at Abraham Lincoln High School.  Parents, guests and other schools' teams were entertained by students performing their original work in groups and individually.  Attendees also enjoyed performances by SCORES's special guest Jose Guerrero, a DU student who also attended west Denver schools, is a leading local actor, and competes nationally as a slam poet.  What a great night!

Thank you to all our wonderful soccer and writing coaches as well as the liaisons at each of the ten schools hosting America SCORES Denver!  Without you we couldn't provide after-school programming to 320 students in DPS and we appreciate your dedication.

Have a wonderful holiday season, everyone.  We'll see you in a few months!
