About this Campaign



The Lincoln High Slam Poetry community does not have direct funding for a very important academic and creative program for students.  To compete in Louder Than a Bomb, we rent school buses for $600  apiece to Omaha and back to Lincoln.  Your gifts will make it possible to compete at all, and keep it affordable for all students. To keep costs low, we pack a sack lunch and water for every student on the bus. 

We have won two State team Championships and two Individual Championships at this event in the past.  We continue to write, carefully edit and perform to extremely high standards.  We include student editors, team members and a hype squad so that many more are able to take part in this beautiful program.

Good news!  Wayne's Body Shop has issued a fundraising challenge for the Lincoln High Slam Poetry Community.  If we can raise $2,000, they will match that amount, essentially doubling our funding.  Please consider giving or please spread the word.
