Each year, Louder Than a Bomb—DMV (LTAB–DMV) showcases teams of youth poets, representing high schools and community organizations in the region, from Montgomery County, Maryland to Fairfax County, Virginia, to share their stories, learn from one another, and build community. After months of preparation and a competitive series of preliminary slams, the top teams meet to compete for the the title of LTAB–DMV champion on the final stage!
