The team is headed to Washington, DC from July 12 to 16 for the Brave New Voices national poetry competition. The Olympics of spoken word, BNV includes over 500 youth poets from 50 cities across the U. S. At BNV, the Tigertail team will participate in workshops and readings with established poets and performers, in open mike events – and they will compete in the Poetry Slam itself. The Miami team, which includes a diverse range of some of South Florida's best young writers, was chosen from a field of more than 1000 teenagers from local high schools who participated in the WordSpeak and SpeakOut programs.

Stephanie Casio, Sophya Giudici-Juarez, Andrew Ruby, Destine Harrison-Williams, Dylan Somerville Hall and Momo Manalang

This year's team is made up of six vibrant Miami-Dade youths: Sophya Giudici-Juarez, Momo Manalang, Destine Harrison-Williams, Andrew Ruby, Stephanie Casio and Dylan Somerville Hall – all current students or recent graduates of Miami-Dade County high schools.

This event will provide the team with an opportunity to perform before a live audience prior to their Washington competition. We're very excited about hearing them all perform together for the first time.
