The National Vocabulary Championship (NVC) is a GSN initiative that uses competition and wordplay to engage and reward high school students, educators and parents, teaching them the value of a strong vocabulary. Created with educational partner The Princeton Review, the NVC is open to all eligible high school students across the country and will be promoted in schools and through a national "Win With Words" PSA campaign.
There are two ways to enter the competition. Eligible students at participating schools in Cleveland, Detroit, New York City, Nashville, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento and St. Louis can qualify to participate in a Citywide Championship for a chance to win more than $5,000 in scholarships and school grants as well as a trip to the national finals.
Fifty finalists will win a trip to New York City for the NVC Finals in March to compete for $40,000 toward college tuition and the title of National Vocabulary Champion. The NVC Finals will be televised on GSN.
