Whether you’ve already aced the SAT verbal section, or you could use some extra practice, this contest keeps
you focused on the details. By the end, you may be correcting your teachers’ spelling and using words your
coach has never heard.
The Spelling & Vocabulary Contest promotes precise and effective use of words. The three-part contest
consists of multiple-choice questions covering proofreading and vocabulary, and words that are written from
dictation. The vocabulary-building and spelling components of the contest are important complements to the
high school academic curriculum and are indicative of vocabulary words contained on standardized tests such
as SAT, PSAT and ACT.
