Vocabathon is a vocabulary challenge that helps improve cognitive and communication skills by expanding the knowledge of words. Preparation for the Vocabathon and Spellathon go hand in hand because they help students learn all facets of words, starting from the definition, spelling, origin, roots, and usage of words in sentences.
The objective of Vocabathon is to enhance writing skills, improve reading comprehension, and provide a solid foundation as students prepare for competitive exams such as PSAT, SAT, ACT, and other competitive vocabulary challenges such as the nation-wide Reader's Digest Vocabulary Challenge.
