College Slam Poetry Tournament at CU - March 12-15

Slam poetry is a form of performance poetry that occurs within a competitive poetry event, called a “slam,” at which poets perform their own poems that are judged on a numeric scale by randomly picked members of the audience.

Each year, ACUI produces the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) offering an opportunity for campuses with new or existing Poetry Slam programs to compete for top honors and to share their artistry and voices. And everyone is enriched by sharing poetry, embracing the value of inclusivity, and supporting a program in which “Everyone’s voice is welcome.”

March 12–15 – The University of Colorado–Boulder will host the largest college poetry slam tournament in the United States. It is the 14th annual College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI), organized by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI).

Fifty-three colleges and universities will compete during the four-‐ day event, and one team will be crowned the 2014 college champion.

The finals will be Saturday, March 15 at 7 p.m. in the Glenn Miller Ballrooms at the University of Colorado–Boulder’s University Memorial Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $7 for public, $3 for students with identification. Ken Arkind will host the show.

All preliminary bouts on Wednesday and Thursday and the semifinal bouts on Friday are free and open to the public. Admission will be based on seat availability.
