SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - The competition was spirited, the atmosphere was kind of...spellbinding.
The 11th annual Scrabble Scramble took place on Tuesday night at St. John's Lutheran Church. The event is sponsored each year by the Rowan County Literacy Council.
On Tuesday a total of five teams played three rounds of Scrabble. Teams were given a starter word, then had to use their tiles to fill the board. Teams could also buy tiles, with all of the money going to local programs to promote literacy.
