Friday, April 30, to close off poetry month, Sierra Nevada College hosted its fourth annual poetry slam. Patterson Hall was a boisterous scene of performing poets, volunteer judges, and one engaged audience – alternately booing and cheering the judges’ scores. The Aerosol Love Letter Campaign, comprised of Matt Blesse, Abe Becker and Terry Taplin, served as MC and also performed their original work. Competitors ranged from SNC students to Incline and Reno residents. Top honors went to Anza Jarschke of SNC, followed by Pan Pantaja and Talik, who brought with him the youngest audience member, his son. Cash prizes were awarded in the amounts of $100.00 first place, $75.00 second place and $50.00 third place.
