How to take part
We’ve made it as easy as possible to take part in The BANANAGRAMS Challenge – here’s what it involves:
After registering your school, simply nominate a member of staff to be your BANANAGRAMS Challenge Representative. In December 2016, we’ll send your Representative a BANANAGRAMS Challenge Welcome Pack!
The Representative draws up a list of participating students and plans the games using the Welcome Pack’s ready-made templates. Students play these rounds, at the school’s convenience, in groups of four.
The winners of each group then play each other, two players at a time, in straightforward elimination rounds. This continues until your school has one outright winner – your ‘Best of the Bunch’ !
Register your Best of the Bunch
After you register the name of your Best of the Bunch – via this website – they receive a unique login code. This enables them to compete in the Online Elimination Rounds.
During this part of the Challenge, all the Best of the Bunch students from schools across the area battle it out in a series of fun, online word games. These can be played at home or at school. The top 12 players on the leader board, qualify for a place in the BANANAGRAMS Challenge Grand Final.
The Grand Final!
Held at an exciting venue, the BANANAGRAMS Challenge Grand Final sees all 12 finalists playing BANANAGRAMS in the last series of elimination rounds. Parents, teachers and siblings are invited along to support the finalists as they race to build their word grids and determine who is the Top Banana!
Every finalist leaves the event with an exclusive BANANAGRAMS Challenge Goodie Bag. The Top Banana also wins the Top Banana Trophy and $1,000 for his or her school!
