Put your wits of your favorite fandom on the line against other opponents in a winner take all bracketed competition.

Hosted by El'Ja Bowens, The Nerd Slam is a winner take all contest in which contestants will be putting their wits on the line against other opponents. The unique part of this contest is that all participants will be putting their own individual knowledge of their favorite show, video game, comic, etc against others with their own Nerd Specialty as well. Think Wolverine(comics) vs Dragonball Z (manga) in a bracket style King of the Hill to determine the winner.

Nerd Slam Rules
1. The Nerd Slam is a competition in which participants will be judged based on their "Nerd" specialty( i.e. Anime,… Video Games, Comic Books,Fantasy Novels, etc). The more specific the specialty, the better for the judges

2. There will be a panel of 3 judges who all have qualities to judge based on their knowledge in "Nerdism"

3.The participant will be asked a series of questions based on their specialty.If there is a tie, the host will asked a random Nerd question on something that EVERY nerd should be knowledgeable on to advance a winner

4. The number of participants will be broken down into a bracket style competition(Think March Madness or any type of playoff to determine a winner).

5. When we are down to the last two contestants, the two finalists will then do their NERD poem that will be judged by the panel to determine the winner.

6. There WILL be an open mic between matches to that poets can perform a "Nerd" Poem
