Spring 2006 SLAM! - Congrats to the winners - see you all next time!
We judges all choose our top five poets, and then assign point values to them based on their ranking from 1-5. That's how we've judged all of the rounds, and that's how we judged this round. In most cases, our choices were pretty similar - in this case they were a bit different - and that can be attributed to what a great job ALL TEN OF YOU did with the prompts and your poems! To say this was a difficult choice for us would be an understatement, believe me!
So ..... after adding up all the points - here is what the totals added up to ...... A THREE-WAY TIE for First Place!
TIED FOR FIRST
Zoo - Salted and Roasted , Dale Arthur , and Katya the Poet
Will receive 250,000 GPs and Poetry Merit Badges
Because there are three people in first place -
the next two in our top five have been awarded 4th and 5th place instead of 2nd and 3rd ....
