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
Lincoln Literacy’s perennial "Scrabble Scramble" was set to make a return this fall, but COVID has pulled the event out by its roots. In its place, we’re ready to offer something fun, challenging, and safe. In place of our in-person Scrabble Scramble, you’re invited to join us for Scrambling for Literacy, played online beginning in October. This event will engage word-game enthusiasts in three rounds of home-based competition over a three-week period, each with its own theme. Cheered on by Lincoln Literacy, participants will play from the comfort of their own home.
To take on the challenge, make a $25 entry-fee donation. Three sets of weekly word games will arrive in your email in-box, starting Oct.18. Those who complete the puzzles over all three weeks will be invited to an online final event. We'll honor players, winners, and our sponsors online Sunday, Nov. 7th.
If you choose not to play, consider becoming an event sponsor. Lincoln Literacy welcomes donations online and through other forms of giving which can be found here. Your sponsorship will help Lincoln Literacy and its volunteer tutors help people gain the skills they need to gain living-wage work, complete their education, and fulfill their dreams. You’ll also get sustained acknowledgment on our website, in our widely viewed social media, and in other public displays.
