Omaha, NE – Parents, teachers, coaches, and high school students packed the Pizza Shop Collective in Benson on Sunday for round one of Omahaâ€™s first â€œLouder than a Bombâ€ competition.
Participants from twelve different high schools each had their best slam poetry artist walk to the stage and step up to the microphone to share a poem about topics including body images, relationships, and family.
Bellevue West, Duchesne Academy, and Lincoln High School, all placed first in Sundayâ€™s competition. Round two of the competition will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday evening at the Omaha Healing Arts Center. Organizers say Sundayâ€™s winning teams have the best chance of competing at the finals this Friday evening at 7 pm, at Creighton Universityâ€™s Harper Auditorium in downtown Omaha.
