SoJam 2019 Competition Theme:  Truth {to} Power.

This year, there will be one theme for our SoJam Competition. How you interpret the theme is up to you! You can use this powerful phrase through both rounds, you can speak to truth in one round and power in another, or think of another interpretation that is all your own. Tell us a narrative where, moving from the first set to the second, truth begets power OR power begets truth.

Note: Should you advance to the second round, we would love to see connected sets! 


Round 1: 8 minutes (the top three groups will move on to Round 2)
Round 2: 4 minutes

The winner will be selected from Round 2.

Good luck!
