For a 10th year, the Literacy Center is hosting Letters for Literacy, a Scrabble Tournament.  Whether you're a serious player or just playing for fun, you'll love it!

Registration is now underway for the tenth annual “Letters for Literacy” SCRABBLE® Tournament hosted by The Literacy Center. This annual event will be on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event will be held at Ivy Tech Community College’s main campus in Evansville, 3501 N. First Ave.

The event is open to the public, and players of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to enter. Teams may consist of one to three players and the cost to play is $50 per team. Participants can play for prizes and recognition in the “Competitive” division or play for laughs in the “Just for Fun” division.

Funds raised through the tournament will benefit The Literacy Center, a non-profit agency whose mission is to improve basic adult literacy in the community. Since 1966, The Literacy Center has been providing free reading improvement instruction for adults in the tri-state area.

“This year’s SCRABBLE® Tournament being the 10th edition we are planning some great extras to go along with the four rounds of competition. The silent auction will be superb and this year’s shirt will feature a “Word Nerd’ theme,” said Literacy Center Executive Director Jennifer Wigginton. “We are excited about this event and no matter the weather it will happen.”
