Although we had many thousand participants from all over the world, we decided to focus our resources on direct philanthropic efforts though our core program, www.LearnThatWord.org.
For the 2010/11 school year, for example, we launched Vocabulary Junction, making free vocabulary tutoring available to third graders throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The Word Cup event is on hold awaiting suitable sponsorship.
Would you like to be informed when it launches again?
Please sign up for an email invitation.
Of course, we will use your email only for that purpose and otherwise keep it under lock.
