Vocabulary Contest Replacing Spelling Bee?
All high school juniors are invited to participate in the first annual Instructivision, Inc. Vocabulary Contest. Students will win cash prizes for themselves and educational software programs for thier schools.
To launch a powerful new vocabulary program, Instructivision, Inc. is sponsoring a Vocabulary Contest for current grade eleven students. The first 10 schools that register will receive free use of the recently patented Vocabulary Excellerator Interactive Game which will prepare students to compete. There is no registration or participation fee. Keeping this competition free and open gives every student a chance to participate. The contest will be held on April 24, 2010 at 16 Chapin Road, Pine Brook, NJ. Schools should register by March 27, 2010.
Contestants will simply play this game to learn hundreds of new words, learn how to remember words and definitions, and easily add 100 to 200 points to their score on the SAT scheduled for May 1. Higher scores on all standardized tests, increased literacy skills, and a strong command of the language are valuable by-products that all contestants will gain in this competition where everyone is a winner.
One unique benefit of this program is that players don’t forget the words they learn because of the mnemonics used in the game. The eight memory techniques identified by brain-based research and incorporated into the game make it possible for players to learn and remember vocabulary while having fun.
“Although spelling bees are popular, a vocabulary bee has real benefits,” touts Instructivision SAT tutor Jeanne Clements, who further explained that spelling bees teach students to spell words they will probably never use. This contest will teach them to use college–level words, raise their SAT scores, and ultimately improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills. “The fun component makes it easy for kids to stick with,” says English teacher Kathleen Menconi of Morris Hills High School in New Jersey.
Prizes will be awarded to the three finalists who must be currently enrolled juniors. First place is $100, second is $75, and third is $50. The school attended by the winner will receive an entire year of free access to Vocabulary Excellerator and unlimited use. The most valuable prize, however, will be higher test scores and increased literacy skills for every student who participates. Interested schools should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
