#Virtualandia! 2021 is an exciting opportunity for students from eligible Portland-area high schools to take part in a dynamic virtual slam poetry competition for the chance to win prizes including the title of #Virtualandia slam champion and corresponding $1,000 visa gift card. Up to 300 youth poets will submit original work via video by midnight Wednesday, March 31 to be reviewed and judged by a diverse group of artists and fans with a pulse on the literary scene.
Ten poets will be selected to advance and qualify for this April 29, 2021 grand slam event. These ten students will have their poems professionally recorded and aired during the grand slam event to be scored by five judges in the typical Verselandia! tradition to identify a top five and our next grand slam champion. Tickets for this exciting and inspiring event are offered on a sliding scale basis below.
