The University of Wyoming’s 7220 Entertainment will host a poetry slam competition in The Gardens, located in the Wyoming Union, Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 8 p.m. Sign-ups begin Friday, Jan. 26, and will continue until the event.

The event is free and open to the public. However, the competition is open only to UW students. Food also will be provided. To register, sign up in the Campus Activities Center (CAC), located in Room 012 in the Wyoming Union. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
