It’s back-to-school season, and Bananagrams, Inc. is getting into the academic spirit with the launch of its Bananagrams School Club.

Since 2015, more than 250,000 students and teachers have played the Bananagrams game through the Bananagrams Challenge. The new Club encourages both schools and students alike to “Go Wild With Words” throughout the school year. The company expects more than 130,000 students to take part this year, and it’s all in a quest to have fun with friends, while developing a love of wordplay and the English language arts.

We hope the Club will create some life-long Bananagrams fans!”

Bananagrams Inc. will offer free kits, including two complimentary Bananagrams games, to qualifying schools in the USA and UK. Free downloadable resources will be available online for all participating clubs. Monthly hashtag challenges and other opportunities for for schools to win prize packs will be offered throughout the year.
