Choose the Right Word

Trivial Pursuit. Spelling bees -- where school children compete to be the best speller. Now there is a vocabulary bee.

Television's Game Show Network (GSN) is making a game of learning words. Maybe not really a game, but a contest with a $40,000 prize.

It began with a written exam, citywide and regional contests, and now the first National Vocabulary Championship is scheduled Sunday. Leading up to the broadcast, GSN is celebrating Win with Words Week. Game shows Lingo and Chain Reaction are featuring teacher and student contestants, and GSN is airing public service announcements pro
moting vocabulary skills. See the clips and meet the finalists here.
