Annual Literacy Center Fundraiser ‘Letters for Literacy’ Scrabble Tournament Set for February 23rd

Scrabble Board Game
Hasbro

Brush up on your language skills and get ready to nail that triple word score while helping fund The Literacy Center of Evansville.

Scrabble® celebrated its 57th anniversary on January 19th, and while Hasbro and others have created variations of the game over that time (Words With Friends, anyone?), the original is still enjoyed by board gamers young and old. I remember my brother and I playing the original with our grandma as a kid, and now my own kids have the more modern version, Scrabble Slam®, they break out from time to time.

It’s a simple concept, if you can spell, you can play; and during the 10th annual Letters for Literacy tournament on Saturday, February 23rd, you can play for the chance to win prizes and benefit The Literacy Center in one fell swoop.

Letters for Literacy will take place at the Commons inside Ivy Tech Community College’s main campus at 3501 North First Avenue in Evansville from 1-4pm. The event is open to the public and open to players of all ages and skill levels, which makes it a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun.

Teams can consist of as few as one person, or as many as three with a $50 entry fee per team regardless of how many team members there are. Teams will be broken up into divisions. For the serious players, there’s the “Competitive” division, and for those looking to play for the sake of having a good time, there’s the “Just for Fun” division. There will be four rounds of competition per division.

Literacy Center Executive Director, Jennifer Wigginton says via press release that since this is the 10th year for the tournament there will be, “some great extras to go along with the four rounds of competition.” She goes on to say there will be a silent auction along with a shirt featuring a “Word Nerd” theme, and that the event will take place regardless of weather that day.
