Our biggest event of the entire year is the TYPS Season Championship, coming April 2017. In order to qualify to perform at the Championship, we use the Season Points System. For every time you participate in the slam or some outside events, you score Season Points. The 15 poets with the highest number of points from the whole season will be invited to compete in the Season Championship in April.

This is how you earn Season Points, 2016-2017:

  • Competing in a TYPS Monthly: 1 point
  • Placing First in a TYPS Monthly: 3 points
  • Placing Second: 2 pts
  • Placing Third: 1 pt
  • Highest Scoring First Timer: 1 pt
  • Performing as Spotlight Point (winner of previous slam): 1 pt
  • Volunteering at a TYPS Monthly: 1 pt
  • Participating in a Spoken Futures community event (outside of TYPS Monthly): 1 pt

The Spoken Futures Staff will keep track of the Season Points System, and will have your total number of Season Points upon request at a Monthly slam. We also hope to keep a running tally here on the website. More info on that soon!
Please let us know if you have any questions!
