Welcome to the BANANAGRAMS CHALLENGE!
The BANANAGRAMS Challenge provides an enjoyable, interactive way to develop language skills through playing and learning with words. Created by the makers of the best-selling word game BANANAGRAMS, the Challenge is open to students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades and is free to enter for any school in the U.S.A. The first 1,500 schools to register will receive a free participation kit that includes 2 BANANAGRAMS games, a wall poster, a Top Banana Medal and a Teacher Guide.
Organizing the Challenge is really simple. At any point during the tournament period running from January 2018 through March 2018, groups of students play a series of BANANAGRAMS games. Simply note the winners’ names for each round and, through this straightforward process of elimination, every school finds its Champion or ‘Top Banana’. You can choose when or where your students play – i.e., at an after-school club, breakfast club, during lesson time or at lunch.
By March 31st, submit your official record to be considered for a $1,000 prize for your school. Submission will include a short paragraph (no more than 100 words) describing what the BANANAGRAMS Challenge has meant to your school and students and photographs, including one of the winner. (These photos may be posted on Bananagrams social media pages, so please ensure you have written approval from parents.) We will select the top 3 stories and post them on Facebook so that the public can vote for their favorite! The story that gets the most Facebook votes will be awarded a $1,000 prize for their school!
