Read, Vote, Win: Register Your Classroom For #MMPoetry Today!

During March Madness Poetry 2014, nearly 100 classrooms — representing over 2,000 students — served as official classroom voters, helping to decide the results of 63 different head-to-head poetry matchups between our all-star authletes.

In 2015, our goal is to recruit 250 classrooms — representing nearly 5,000 kids! — to vote on this year’s poems. It’s a stretch, and we’re off to a late start, but I think we can do it.

What’s new for classrooms this year?

  1. We will give away DAILY poetry prizes for voting, commenting, sharing, etc.
  2. The grand prize (last year = 50 books!) will be split into a third prize of 5 books, a second prize of 10 books, and a grand prize of 25 books, in addition to the 24 daily book giveaways.
  3. Poems will be tagged by target age range to make it easier for teachers to decide which ones to dedicate their classroom time to voting and discussing.
  4. Matchup pages will include a quick pronunciation guide and hyperlink to an online definition for each authlete’s prompt word.
  5. Teachers and students will be able to download a free, printable #MMPoetry 2015 event program.
  6. Last but not least, we’ve created an easier-to-use, easier-to-share classroom registration form to encourage maximum participation. Sign up in less than a minute from your desktop, tablet, or phone! And then pass it on to your colleagues and other awesome teachers so they can sign up, too!

    Not that I’m encouraging you to rush, but the fastest sign up speed so far has been 42 seconds. All but one have been submitted in under 2 minutes. One person took 3:52, but they must have taken a bathroom break or something.
