The Point is Poetry

Fingers start snapping at the sounds of wicked rhymes and impassioned performances featuring heart, humor and gut-wrenching personal stories.  We see the four final teams competing in the largest poetry slam festival in the Midwest, Louder Than a Bomb - Great Plains, with high school teams from Ogallala, Waverly and Omaha (Duschene & Skutt) fighting for the highest score.  Only one team can take home the Pop-Tart Trophy but the points are not the point… the point is Poetry.
