Vocabulary Bowl off-season creates opportunities for fierce, but friendly competition that engage students in word learning with our challenges, Jams, and Vocabulary Bowl.

In the Vocabulary Bowl collaboration is the key to climbing the leaderboards. Every student who plays and learns makes an important contribution to their school's collective achievement, so the more participation there is, the better. The Bowl is about motivating all learners to put in the effort, improve their literacy skills, and experience academic success.

The Vocabulary Bowl is currently in its off-season. We are excitedly preparing to launch a new season in 2023. Check back for updates and announcements about future seasons on our blog.
