Spoken Words

On Saturday, March 3, two Dayton High juniors, Ajarae R. and Shayla F. traveled to Indianapolis to compete in the Concept Spoken Word Competition. In January and February, Ajarae and Shayla wrote and submitted their poem on the topic “A Change is Going to Come.”  After working for months writing, they took the stage for their first competition. Though they didn’t bring home any of the prizes, they both received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the judges, contest organizers, audience members, and fellow competitors, and they are looking forward to competing again next year!
