The Define-a-Thon WORD Challenge

Move over spelling bee. Just because you can spell a word doesn’t mean you know how to use it. From the editors of The American Heritage Dictionary comes the Define-a-Thon, a competitive word challenge.

As part of National Define-a-Thon Week, WORD will hold its very own Define-a-Thon, Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Those who would like to participate should arrive by 7:30. Prizes will be awarded to the winners. “Everyone’s true competitive nature is sure to come out at the Define-a-Thon. I can’t wait,” Christine Onorati, WORD owner said.
