It’s never too late to be great and remembered. Because those who are great and remembered never actually die.

This award, in partnership with Beyond Baroque, honors the late + beloved Get Lit Player + U.S. Marine Carlos Segovia, who was killed in a random act of violence on September 16, 2016.

During the Classic Slam, Get Lit will award two $3,000 cash endowments to deserving high school seniors. We are looking for writers who exhibit the same strong character and kindness as Carlos did. In this way, we carry on his memory.
