WHAT'S in a word? A lot actually! In the right hands, they have the power to change attitudes, create emotion and shape our past, present and future.
Marking the 60th anniversary of Scrabble®, the WordWide Awards give you the chance to vote for the influential people that have used words to the greatest effect across a number of different categories including entertainment, sport, written word, politics and music.
Make sure your voice is heard. Cast your vote at www.mattelscrabble.com. Word stars with the highest number of votes in each category will be awarded the ultimate wordsmith's accolade - The Golden Scrabble® Tile in October.
To whet your wordy appetite, the Solihull Times has teamed up with Scrabble® to give away five sets of the special edition 60th Anniversary Scrabble® which features a contemporary translucent board and tiles.
