Awards, Competitions and other "Winning" Opportunities

Compete with the Best Word Sleuths

The Quiddler school competition is a challenge for students to team up to compete with the best word sleuths in the country. Teachers must first register their teams, which are assigned IDs. Then each day a team member (or the teacher) prints out the current day’s puzzle worksheet. The worksheet has the day’s puzzle letters on it and shows the highest score attained. When students create words from the letters that add up to within 10 points of that score, their team qualifies to enter for that day. If they do this once a week for 25 weeks, the school wins an assortment pack of games made by Set Enterprises. Top scores are posted daily, so students can see how well their team is doing. Try the Daily Puzzle online.
Deadline: The competition runs annually from August to July.
