Save the Date- SCRABBLE Tournament

scrabblesmackdownIt’s time for a SCRABBLE® Smackdown!

 On Saturday, February 27, 2016, The Literacy Center will host the 13th Annual SCRABBLE® Smackdown (formerly, Letters for Literacy SCRABBLE® Tournament) at Ivy Tech Community College from 1-4 pm. Join us as teams of competitors fight it out in a war of words to reach the highest SCRABBLE® score. This year, we are excited to introduce new divisions of competition; Teams can choose their division based on their level of skill, competitive drive, or desire to strategize and bend the rules, for a maximum amount of fun and bragging rights for all. A division particularly devoted to high school and college students has also been added. Competition continues between SCRABBLE® rounds as participants and spectators bid for great items in the silent auction.

We would love for you to be a part of our event! Whether you put together a team of competitive word nerds, become an event sponsor, or donate an item to our auction, your contribution will make a difference in our community.

Your sponsorship, auction donation, or participation in our event is greatly appreciated and allows our organization to continue to have a positive impact on lives in our community. If you have any questions about this event, or about our programs, please do not hesitate to call The Literacy Center at 812-429-1222 or visit our website at For your records our tax identification number is 35-2088005.

Approximately 18,000 people in Vanderburgh County struggle with reading. They struggle to read a wishlist of a child, a letter to Santa or a greeting card. These people are your neighbors, they are someone you know. The Literacy Center can help. We offer free, confidential reading help to adults. We have provided over 1800 instructional hours this year to your neighbors, will you please make a donation to help the Literacy Center provide more help to your neighbors and community? A donation makes a great last minute gift for a book lover, an avid reader, a teacher, a mom, a dad, a grandparent or someone that has everything. Learn more about donation or volunteering at
