Achievement Points

Youth players are awarded achievement points for competing successfully in NASPA-rated, School SCRABBLE, and Youth SCRABBLE tournaments.

Players get 1 point for each tournament they finish, plus 1 point for each game they win. Both members of a team get full points in School SCRABBLE events.

In addition, bonus points are awarded to the top 4 finishers in each division of a tournament:

  • 5 points for 1st
  • 3 points for 2nd
  • 2 points for 3rd
  • 1 point for 4th

Award Categories

The award season runs from the beginning of a North American SCRABBLE Championship to the beginning of the next championship where the winners will be announced.

There are 3 grade categories of Youth Achievement Awards:

  • High School - Grades 9 through 12
  • Middle School - Grades 6 through 8
  • Elementary School - Grades 2 through 5


Players in each category will be recognized for the most achievement points earned.

Players finishing the year with the highest NASPA rating in each category will also be honored.
