The competition, which boasted over $90,000TTD in prizes courtesy the First Citizens Group, took place on Sunday 30th April at the Aldwyn Roberts “Lord Kitchener” Auditorium, NAPA to a sold out audience. Poetry Slam veteran Idrees Saleem earned 3rd place, Alexandra Stewart took 2nd place and eighteen year old Camryn Bruno walked away with the competition’s $50,000.00 1st place prize.
Jason Julien - Deputy CEO, Business Generation dined with the poets, extended to them his congratulations and a few tips on ‘Money Management’. “Money is a terrible master but a wonderful servant” Julien cautioned and went on to encourage the poets by adding “Trinidad and Tobago has an infinite amount of talent…work hard at your craft, be professional, treat it with the respect that it deserves and don’t sell yourselves short.”
