WordMasters Challenge vocabulary lists have been distributed. Our first challenge will be the week of November 22.

The WordMasters Challenge™ consists of three 20-minute analogy-solving meets held at school throughout the year Prior to each meet, the students are given a list of 25 challenging vocabulary words that will appear in the Challenge Test analogies.

Excellence in the competition will require both a mastery of the word meanings and thoughtful reasoning about the relationships between the words.
