Now that the busyness of Christmas has passed and the final performance in the 2nd Annual #MormonPoetrySlam has posted (see the event archive here), it’s time to determine the winner of the Audience Choice Award. For your consideration and reviewing pleasure, here are the eighteen entries, listed in order of appearance (you may need to hit “Read next page” at the bottom of the Storify to review all of eighteen).

Once you’ve reviewed the entries, review the rules for voting:

1) The poll will close midnight (Mountain time), Saturday, January 3.
2) Anyone can vote and performers can garner votes however shamelessly they want to, but voters can vote only once.
3) The performance with the most votes when the poll closes Saturday will win the Audience Choice Award.
