2016-17 WordMasters Challenge 
Year-End Results

Whew!  The 30th annual WordMasters Challenge™ has come to a close.  We hope your students have enjoyed another season of mental challenges, and can confidently proclaim they "own" an additional 75 words!  We are already at work preparing the word lists and tests for the 2017-18 WordMasters Challenge™!  Registration is available online now through September 30th -- just click here to register today or download an order form.

At the conclusion of each year’s Challenge, we offer three categories of national individual recognition.  “Highest Honors” are reserved for those students who have finished among the top 10-15 students in the country at their grade level.  “High Honors” are for those students who have finished among the top 2% of all competitors at their grade levels, and “Honorable Mention” is for those who have finished in the top 10%.  The score required to qualify for these honors varies from year to year.  The charts below show the minimum score required for each level of honor at each grade level for the 2016-17 WordMasters Challenge™.

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.
