The performances will be judged by members of Space Coast Poets for delivery, message, poetic style and audience appeal. The top three winners will be published in the Viera Voice. All ages may participate. Participants should arrive at 5:30 p.m. to sign up. We will only take the first 30 people to sign up. We will do our best to accommodate participant schedules.
