Hi there,

MIT is running a nationwide vocab contest, and I think it may be of interest to your readers. Actually, I have no idea if that is true, but I thought I would try...

It is being hosted at We are trying to get high schoolers to teach other SAT/ACT vocabulary, and they'll be using a feature we've built called Brainypics flashcards, which lets users pair a word to images and sentences of their making. Our end goal is to create a free resource online that can help high schoolers prep for the big test, and we could use all the help we can get publicizing & getting teachers/kids involved.

We'll be awarding prize money to the student and his/her school who has the "best" Brainypic as voted on by the public as well as iTunes to Finalists and top contributors. We will double the prizes if we can get students to make 4 unique Brainypics for each word on our word list. Due date for submissions is May 22. More details at

Please let me know if you could write a short blurb about us.
