March 20, 2014 - Fierce competition took the auditorium by storm as 20 local teens from high schools across the City of Buffalo battled for the top prize at BASCS' 9th Annual Poetry Slam. This year's theme, Making a Difference/Change the World Through Service, had competitors locked in a war of words to see who would walk away with the $500 grand prize! The talent was incredible... The judges had tough decisions to make... And in the end, three came out on top: Danielle Johnson (Olmsted HS) placed 1st, BASCS' own Malik Robinson took home 2nd place and Hawraa Ahmed (SBCS) placed third. CONGRATULATIONS to the winners... Excellent competition by ALL!!!
