BGP Brave New Voices Team

$2,600 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 49 months
For the past two years, NEPA students have competed at the Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam & Festival. BNV will be held in Atlanta this summer, and we are turning to our community to help us raise the final amount needed to take the entire team, including mentors. 

Brave New Voices is a multi-round poetry competition, with a focus on youth networking and exposure to writing workshops, artists, educators and other poets from around the world. This year we were one of 55 teams selected to compete. Over 80 teams from around the world applied - and we are honored to represent the youth of NEPA! 

Contributions will cover registration fees, flight costs, and hotel rooms for 12 on the night prior to BNV registration.  Because of our community's early support, we've committed to traveling with a team of 12, which includes non-competing students as well.  (6 competing poets + 3 entourage  + 2 mentors  + 1 photographer) 

THANK YOU for your support and encouraging our youth to tell the stories which are most important to them. Every donation counts!

Hi everyone!! We would like to encourage all our donors to post a picture of themselves holding a sign of why they donated to the fundraiser. Many of the teens (and even myself on a few) don't know all your faces. I would love to show them how diverse this group is. Please send via email or post to FBabd tag breaking ground poets and Katie Watkins Wisnosky in it. Thank you for all your support!!
