Scrambling for Literacy


Hey, Wordslingers, here’s your chance to show off your linguistic prowess and support Lincoln Literacy for the next go-round:

Scrambling for Literacy

We wanted to bring you Scrabble Scramble this fall. Oh, how we ached to do that. But events take months of planning, and at decision time Covid-19 was raging through our community. So, as a pandemic-proof substitute, we offered Scrambling For Literacy: three weeks of fiendishly challenging word games sent via email. Would it work? We really didn’t know. With trepidation, we set our sights on raising $14,000, about a third less than our last Scrabble Scramble yielded.


But, thanks to planners, players, and sponsors, Scrambling for Literacy blew past our paltry hopes. We ended up with more than 50 sponsors and donors, and together with player entry fees, we cleared $21,600! Our generous supports are listed below. The last word on Scrambling for Literacy has to be THANKS!
