1) There will be 7 monthly slams, October - April for points: 5 for 1st place, 3 for 2nd place, 1 for third place, 1 for just competing
2) Once you have 8 points, you are guaranteed a spot in finals, and you may NOT slam for the rest of the season.
3) The top 8 point earners will participate in the finals, held in May (This is a change from the previous year). The poets with the four highest scores will earn spots on the team.
4) All slams follow the standard PSi rules: no props or costumes, 3-minute time limit, and original work.
