No matter what you may think about Dipset’s Jim Jones, you can’t hate the dude for doing his part in encouraging kids to stay in school. In a partnership with the Entertainers 4 Education Alliance, Jones will be judging and participating at the “Achieve Your Dreams” Poetry Contest Grand Finale on Wednesday, January 24 at the Magic Johnson Theatre in
“I am very excited about this event; we received hundreds of poem submissions from students from around the city and narrowed it down to the finalist,” Jones said. “I just want students to know that they can be anything they want to be if they believe they can. I am happy that I can make a difference.”
The grand prize winner of the contest will be awarded a book stipend to pay for all books for the first year of college and summer internship working directly with Jim Jones and Diplomat Records. Five runner-ups will meet and greet Jim Jones at the event and receive a personal autographed poster.
