What is Wordplay?

Wordplay is a team-based trivia competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop culture, history, and literature, and showing off their smarts. Each team comprises three people from a local business or organization. The audience is invited to play along and cheer for their favorite team! 

Who benefits?

Wordplay is the annual fundraiser for Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle. LVCA is an independent, nonprofit organization that promotes adult literacy through equitable, inclusive, free, confidential, one-to-one English and Citizenship tutoring. Funds raised through Wordplay support adult learners as they achieve their educational goals. 

How do we participate? 

Team sponsorship rates start at $600. Teams can pay online, send a check, or use crowdsourcing to raise their fees. Sponsors can also donate in-kind goods of the same value in place of their team fee. Sponsorships without team participation are also available.
