Do the Slam Thing: CPL's TRW

It's almost TRW and here at CPL that means getting ready for Cleveland Real Star. This is the third year of competition and it works like American Idol. Teens compete at the branch, the best three from each branch compete in three semi-finals by area of the city, and then the top three from each semi-final make the finals in the auditorium. The teens get backpacks, t-shirts, and the winner gets a trophy. The branch gets bragging rights. The library brings in a couple hundred teens, families, and friends throughout the course of the competition.

The first year was a singing competition, last year was dancing, and this year will be performance poetry.
