Event description

To play in the City Finals, a team must have qualified via one of the regional qualifiers. Unlike the qualifiers, this event is 4 rounds long. In all tournaments, students play in pairs. Games are limited to 25 minutes per team (50 minutes total) and a SCRABBLE® clock is used. Both teams keep track of the score and verify the score throughout the game. At the end of a game, students report who won and the scores. For consecutive rounds, players are matched against players with similar records.

The events will have a similar format to tournaments from previous years with the emphasis on friendly rivalry. There will be a variety of prizes for being a good sport, theme words, and participation.
