what is america’s best college poet?

America’s Best College Poet is a nationwide search for the best college or university undergraduate poet in the country. Watch as the top bards from campuses across the United States battle it out for a cash prize and bragging rights. Determined by audience vote and the celebrity judges (professional touring poets and stars of the college circuit), top vote-getters from preliminary rounds will meet in the Grand Slam Finale where only one poet will walk away with the title.

All poets competing in the national competition will be invited to Champ Camp, a unique chance to study and be mentored by the celebrity judges. During Champ Camp, poets will learn the tricks of the trade from some of the most successful and award-winning poets of today.
