About BANANAGRAMS

Bananagrams®, Inc., is the family-owned company behind a range of innovative word games, including the international phenomenon BANANAGRAMS – the fast, fun anagram game that will “drive you bananas!” Created by three generations of the Nathanson family, the game has sold over six million copies in more than 30 countries globally and is available in multiple languages.

About the BANANAGRAMS Challenge

The BANANAGRAMS Challenge is managed by Bananagrams®, Inc. It is open to mainland registered UK Schools only. One registration per school only.  Schools who sign up for multiple packs with different teachers will be sent one pack to share. The 2018 BANANAGRAMS Challenge is limited to the first 1000 schools that register online at www.bananagramschallenge.co.uk. When 1000 schools have registered, the registration page will close.

Registration is limited to strictly one pack per school. The organisers reserve the right to remove any duplicate school registrations or any non-primary school registrations (e.g. colleges, overseas schools, home schools, private tutors etc).

On registering to be part of the BANANAGRAMS Challenge, each school is agreeing to take part in the BANANAGRAMS Challenge and will receive a BANANAGRAMS Challenge Welcome Pack in the post in January 2018. Full details of timings, what is included in the Welcome Pack and how the BANANAGRAMS Challenge works can be found at www.bananagramschallenge.co.uk.

There is no charge for the Welcome Pack or to enter the BANANAGRAMS Challenge.

The BANANAGRAMS Challenge is aimed at pupils aged 8-11 (years 4,5 and 6). Pupils that take part in the BANANAGRAMS Challenge should be no older than 11 years of age by 31 August 2018.

The organisers of the BANANAGRAMS Challenge reserve the right to exclude any School from the Challenge if they believe the school is not using the Welcome Pack for the explicit purpose of participating in the BANANAGRAMS Challenge.

The BANANAGRAMS Challenge website is not a shared site, so you cannot interact with any other schools or pupils within the site. This means that no one can see you either and you can be assured that no one can interact with you.

About the BANANAGRAMS Challenge online game

Once Schools have completed their BANANAGRAMS Challenge in school and found their ‘Best of the Bunch’, Schools need to register them online at www.banangramschallenge.co.uk.

All ‘Best of the Bunch’ pupils that are registered by 03 March 2017 will go on to compete in the BANANAGRAMS Challenge online game. There will be three word-based games that pupils can play. Points scored will be shown on the leaderboard. Terms and Conditions and Rules of Play for the online BANANAGRAMS Challenge will be found under the ‘play’ section of the BANANAGRAMS Challenge website when it goes live on 06 March 2017 (dates tbc for 2018).

The online game will close at 5pm on Friday 24 March 2017 (dates tbc for 2018) and the Top 12 players on the leaderboard will be invited to attend the BANANAGRAMS Challenge Grand Final in London on Saturday 29 April 2017. (dates tbc for 2018)

Players who are invited to attend the Grand Final in London will need to make their own travel arrangements. No costs for travel or accommodation to and from the Grand Final will be paid for by the organisers of the BANANAGRAMS Challenge.

Prizes

Each school will receive a ‘Best of the Bunch’ certificate in their free Welcome Pack.  This should be used as a prize to give to the ‘Best of the Bunch’ of the in-school Challenge.

The prize for the Top 12 on the leaderboard of the online BANANAGRAMS Challenge is a place in the Grand Final in London.

The prize for the winner (Top Banana) of the Grand Final in London is the Top Banana trophy and £1000 for their school as well as lots of BANANAGRAMS goodies. All 12 Finalists will receive a goodie bag at the end of the Grand Final.
