Word Mania is free to enter for any students from Y1–9, and with $350,000 in prizes up for grabs there’s plenty to play for.
Word Mania is more than just a fun exercise. It challenges students to think outside the box and develop crucial literacy skills while improving their vocabulary and word knowledge.
Students have until 9 August 2019 to sharpen their skills as part of the Practice Round, before the official Competition Rounds from 12 August to 23 August.
