2013-14 WordMasters Challenge 
Year-End Results

Thank you for your patience as we corrected the error in calculating cumulative team scores for the 2013-14 WordMasters Challenge™.  Instead of adding together each team's score for each meet, the program was determining the cumulative scores for individual students and producing a team score based on the top ten students overall for each team. We apologize for the error and the delay in getting these much-anticipated final results to you!

At the conclusion of each year’s meets, we offer three categories of national individual recognition.  “Highest Honors” are reserved for those students who have finished among the top 10-15 students at their grade levels in the country.  “High Honors” are for those students who have finished among approximately the top 2% of all competitors at their grade levels, and “Honorable Mention” is for those who have finished in approximately the top 10%.  The score required to qualify for these honors varies from contest to contest.  The charts below show the minimum score required for each level of honor at each grade level.

Those of you who have been participating in the WordMasters Challenge for many years may notice that the minumum scores for achieving High Honors and Honorable Mention are lower than previous years.  This drop is simply due to the change in our score reporting system that allows schools to report all their student scores (instead of only the top ten scores).  As a result, the number of students included in the "top 2%" and "top 10%" has increased significantly, which in turn affects the minumum score required to qualify.  As more and more schools begin to report all of their scores, these charts will provide a more accurate snapshot of student performance across the country.

We suggest that any student who has achieved a cumulative score high enough to qualify for one of these honors deserves special recognition—an article or photo in your local newspaper, a commendation from your Board of Education, or at least individual mention in a schoolwide awards assembly. Please send us copies of articles about your Challenge champions which have run in your local newspapers.  We especially enjoy seeing photographs of the children who make up teams in different parts of the country, and will post them on our website with your permission.
