LiteracyPlanet’s Word Mania USA: Calling All Students to Join Free, Fun Online Spelling Competition!

Word Mania USA is giving students the chance to win up to $10,000 in
prizes!

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Students in the United States are invited to put their spelling skills
to the test in Word Mania USA, the world’s biggest online literacy
competition.

Created by LiteracyPlanet, an award-winning English literacy (language
arts) education program, Word Mania challenges students to create as
many words as they can in three minutes from 15 randomly generated
letter tiles.

LiteracyPlanet CEO Adam McArthur said: “The response from U.S. schools
to Word Mania has been very encouraging. We now have schools and school
districts from all 50 states across the U.S. participating in this fun
competition that has been proven to build core literacy skills.

“We look forward to sharing our program and demonstrating how effective
it is with all schools who participate.”

Word Mania is free for any student from Grades 1 to 9 to enter and with
$10,000 in prizes being offered by LiteracyPlanet, there’s plenty to
play for.

LiteracyPlanet U.S. Commercial Director Ashley O’Connor said she was
looking forward to seeing children in the U.S. rise to the challenge:
“Word Mania is a great way for students to improve literacy skills while
having fun. It’s been shown to improve a variety of literacy skills
including phonics, spelling, vocabulary and word knowledge and we see an
average 36 per cent improvement in scores over the competition.”

Word Mania develops crucial literacy skills including word recognition,
vocabulary and word knowledge.

Schools have until March 1 to register and sharpen their skills as
part of the Practice Round. The Competition Round will then run from
March 4 – 8.

The top-performing schools will qualify for the Final Round from
March 13 – 15 and have the chance to win up to $10,000 in prizes.
