The WordMasters Challenge is an international Language Arts competition for students in grades 3 - 8. The assigned words increase in difficulty at each grade level. The "Challenge" tests take place three times a year in the students' classrooms and are scored on how well the kids are able to use their knowledge of the words to complete twenty analogies. The WordMasters Challenge encourages growth not only in vocabulary, but in critical thinking and verbal reasoning. Nearly 3,000 teams from throughout the United States and several foreign countries participate in this yearly competition.

There are three competitions each school year taking place about two months apart. On the first competition, students are tested on 25 words assigned to them. On the second competition, they are assigned 25 new words and are tested on all 50 words. On the third competition, they are assigned 25 additional words and are tested on all 75 words they have learned over the course of the school year.
