The 2020–2021 Vocabulary Bowl season ends on Friday, April 30th. To celebrate this special occasion, schools across the map are invited to compete in a special One-Day Vocabulary Bowl Challenge.

Grand Finale

This exciting event is a one day sprint on the last day of the 7-month long Vocab Bowl season. The word-learning action plays out on the daily leaderboards for 24 hours as students master as many words as they can on by playing The Challenge. It's a fast and furious event that will bring some much needed fun to your students, whether they're learning in school, remote, or hybrid.

The schools that master the most words on April 30th and finish at the top of the Division I, II, and III leaderboards will be crowned the Final Buzzer Champions. It's a claim to fame which will earn them an official Vocabulary Bowl achievement certificate and hefty bragging rights. Certificates will also be awarded to the top 5 high schools and middle/elementary schools in Divisions I, II and III.
