Round 3 6 poets
The competition will be a 3 round slam with elimination each round. The poet with the hightest cumulative score at the end of the 3rd round will be crowned the winner.
** If there is a tie, the poets will have a tie breaker if time allows. This is determined by the SlamCharlotte Management Team. If time does not allow for a tie breaker, the poets will split the prize money.**
Random.com is used to determine the order of the first round. In the 2nd and 3rd round, the poet with the highest score will perform first and the round will end with the poet with the lowest score.
*The 16th poet will be the calibration poet for the slam.*
