Are you a killer player at Scrabble? Able to suss out the Countdown conundrum in seconds? If you are sitting there nodding away then you may well be interested in taking part in the Scottish Friendly Letterfall UK Championship.
The Scottish Friendly Letterfall UK Championship started on 22nd September and the top player from each of the 4 UK countries at noon on Monday 3rd November 2013 will be selected to take part in the Grand Final in Glasgow on 28th November 2014. Not only will they receive £100 each for being the highest placed player from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales, but if they win the final they will receive a further £500 and a trophy! Not bad.
So are you up for the challenge? Fancy trying to get to the top of the relevant leader board by noon on Monday? You can even practice first with the Standard Letterfall game, but remember those scores won’t count in the challenge itself. It’s really easy to sign up – just click here to get started.
The Scottish Friendly Book tour has been running for the last 15 years with the Scottish Book Trust to bring children’s authors from around the world to schools and libraries across the country. The Letterfall UK Championship is another great way to promote literacy whilst us older kids can have some fun at the same time.
