SCRABBLE® For Literacy is a charitable event to benefit The Reader's Route program. In addition to approximately 50% of the entry fees being returned to the players as prizes, donated items are awarded for various categories.

SCRABBLE for Literacy Community Events

The Community Open House and Mini Tournament events held during previous Tournaments will not be available this year.
Community members are welcome to come and observe the scheduled tournaments. Observers can also receive helpful Scrabble tips, including word lists, at no charge. They may also play Scrabble themselves, using deluxe playing equipment that will be provided in a room adjacent to the tournament if they desire and will play quietly.
