In conjunction with the Creativity Festivity, The DHS Annual Poetry Slam was an enormous success this year. Many thanks to our sponsors: School District 9-R and the The Durango Art Center. Thanks too for the generous donations from Maria’s Bookshop and Animas Chocolate Company. We could not put on the slam without several volunteers: MCs: Shelby Fuchs & Claudia Luthy; Calibration Poet: Dan Riecks; Judges: Scott Graham, Erin Schanbarger, Candace Alburn, Kyle Schultz, and Avery Lazare; Scorekeeper: Alex Pinion; Slam Jam practice coach: Sheridan Brull; Volunteers from the DAC, Sandra Butler and Eric Bulrice; and the band Superbad, director Evan Suiter. Congratulations to first place poet: junior, Amy Leonard and second place poet: junior Aubrey Haddow. Words possess power! Thanks and hope to see everyone back next year!
