Boise Slam Team Finals Qualification:
1. September to March, poets who get 1st place get 3 points towards being in Finals, 2nd place = 2 points, 3rd place = 1 point.
2. September to March, poets who attend a Reading and Workshop Series workshop (held at 5 pm at Boise State University same day as the slam) get 1 point towards Finals.
3. Hosts of Boise Poetry Slam get 1 point per hosting.
Top poets compete in Finals at the slam in April. Poets must sign contract before competing. Boise currently takes 5 team members, sometimes a coach or alternate as well but only the top 5 poets are guaranteed Team status.
Replacement process: If team members drop out or are unable to perform according to the contract (attendance, etc.) and are dropped from the team, the Slammaster has the discretion to replace them (we only need 4 on the team so if one person drops they do not necessarily have to be replaced). If they are replaced, the first person asked to join the team will be the first runner-up from Finals, then the next runner-up, and so on until the Finals roster is used up. After that folks can be asked according to their number of points from the season.
