Wordplay

Charlottesville's Game Show for Trivia Lovers

Calling all trivia buffs, it’s time for Wordplay! Assemble your team, drill those facts, review your pop-culture references, and get ready to compete in the thirteenth year of Wordplay. Team space is limited, so register today!

What's Wordplay?

Wordplay is a team-based trivia competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop-culture, history, 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, non-profit organization that addresses low literacy and undereducation among adults in our region through free, individualized reading, writing, and English language instruction. 

How do we participate? 

Sponsorships start at $600 per team, the cost of providing approximately six months of instruction to one student. Every sponsor receives a team in the competition, a listing in the program, three audience tickets to the event (valued at $60), and an invitation to join us for the pre-game reception. Our higher-level sponsors receive recognition in our program, their logo on our publicity (including TV and newspaper), as well as mentions on our social media channels. Sponsors can also donate in-kind goods of the same value in place of their team fees. Sponsorships without team participation are also available. Click here to view the 2020 Sponsorship package. 

*For the first time in 13 years, we decided to raise the price of team admission to Wordplay. The cost to put on the event has continued to rise, as has the cost to provide our services to our students. We hope that the $100 increase will not deter teams from returning to the competition. To help soften the blow, we will offer one additional audience ticket to each team (valued at $20). Each team will now receive three audience tickets.
