Each year, over 150,000 students in grades 3-8 from some of the best public and private schools across the country participate in the WordMasters Challenge™.
Unlike other language arts competitions for this age group – which focus on grammar, punctuation, spelling and other language mechanics – the WordMasters Challenge™ helps students to think both analytically and metaphorically.
The contest addresses higher-level word comprehension and verbal reasoning in two ways:
- It bases the analogies on special vocabulary lists, developed for each grade and difficulty level by experienced teachers, which participants study before each meet.
- It challenges students to complete analogies based on relationships among words they have learned.
