Perry Harrison winners from the school level competition of the Reader's Digest National Word Power Challenge on January 6, 2005 will advance to the state level championship on March 18, 2005. The Grade Level Challenge, at which students answered oral and written questions on vocabulary, is the first round of the 3rd annual Reader's Digest National Word Power Challenge.

Winners include:
Niamh Cahill-Billings - Fourth Grade
Charlotte Harrison - Fifth Grade
Garrett Holt - Sixth grade
Sharlene Weiss - Seventh Grade
Cassandra Silenzi - Eighth Grade

The kickoff for this year's challenge was the week of October 1, 2004, with thousands of schools across the United States participating. The school winners will now take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers in each state will be invited to compete in the State Championship events held across the country on March 18, 2005. Students at these events will be competing for the title of State Champion. These students move one step closer to $50,000 in college scholarships!

Reader's Digest National Word Power Challenge will provide an all-expense-paid trip to Disney/MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida, for state champions and their respective teacher/escorts to participate in the Reader's Digest National Word Power Challenge national championship on April 18 and 19, 2005. The first-place national winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship. The second and third place winners will receive $15,000 and $10,000 college scholarships, respectively.
