My 13-year-old son and his Scrabble partner attended the National School Scrabble Championship in Orlando this past weekend. (We're from Toronto.) It's only the second year the event is open to Canadians.The first prize is $10,000 plus all-expenses-paid trip to Hollywood to be interviewed on the Jimmy Kimmel talk show. With such a big prize, the competition attracts quite a few serious players. Well... my son and his partner won first prize! We're all thrilled for him, and still in a bit of shock. Hollywood, here we come!

That is fantastic! Congratulations to your son. You must be so proud. And what a great prize too. You'll have to let us know when he's going to be on so we can all watch.
