The third annual Issaquah Poetry Slam is from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at the Skyline High School Black Box Theater.

Hosted by the Issaquah Youth Advisory Board, the event offers teens from the Issaquah School District the chance to present their original poetry in front of their peers and a panel of judges.

The board hopes the event will help ignite a socially conscious spirit and activism in Issaquah’s youth, and said in a recent statement that a poetry slam is an excellent opportunity for teens to display their writing muscle.
