Scoring Big for Literacy in Canada

March 10, 2015

Last week, on March 4th, Frontier College hosted their 11th annual SCRABBLE® Corporate Challenge, a highly anticipated fundraiser that supports the organization's literacy programs. The annual tournament is a one-night, no spellcheck Scrabble competition that raises funds to help improve literacy in children, youth and adults across Canada. Since 2005, the event has raised more than $2.5 million and this year's proceeds totaled $320,000.

Hosted by David Chilton, this year's tournament welcomed 37 corporate teams from Bay Street law firms, investment firms, financial institutions, technology firms and blue chip corporations who competed for the coveted TMX Cup and the opportunity to open Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

Congratulations to all teams and sponsors who demonstrated their support for literacy. The 2015 Scrabble Corporate Challenge Conference Winners are:
