US States Spell Challenge
Duration: Open

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Original to SCC.

We have a new spell challenge based on the 50 US states...with a little twist. To complete the challenge, spell out the name of each state listed below by reading a book using the following options: (1) first letter of the book title, (2) first letter of the author's first or last name, (3) first letter of a series title, or (4) the first letter of a main character's first or last name.

THE TWIST:
(1) Use at least one book set in the state that you are spelling out (Example: if you are spelling out ALABAMA, you could use The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion - which is set in Alabama, for one of the letter A's).

OR

(2) Read a book in which the state's two-letter designation can be found listed consecutively in either the book title (using Pennsylvania as an example - Murder on Gramercy Park), or in the author's first or last name (using Pennsylvania as in example - Nicholas Sparks, Pamela Clare, Lisa Kleypas, etc). Subtitles and series titles can be used for this section.

Be sure to indicate the option you are using and the book that fits that option in your spell out.

For the hard letters Q, X, Y and Z, the letter need only be found in book title, author's first or last name, series title, or a main character's first or last name. It does not have to be the first letter.

Welcome to the challenge, Amelia!

You can do either task for each state. For example, for Alabama, your twist option may be that you read a book set in Alabama, while your twist option for Alaska may be a book read in which the state's two-letter designation. So you don't have to do the same option for every state. You can mix it up and do it as you go.

And nothing has to be completed in order. So you don't have to have one state completed before moving on to the next.

Does that help?

Yes. That helps a lot. This looks like a fun challenge! Thanks for putting it together.

Welcome to the challenge, Teresa! No deadline on this one :)

You probably want to reserve a little more space though.

If you do so below this, I'll move this post so all of yours are together.

US States Spell Challenge
Duration: 3/30/18- Open


To complete the challenge, spell out the name of each state listed below by reading a book using the following options: (1) first letter of the book title, (2) first letter of the author's first or last name, (3) first letter of a series title, or (4) the first letter of a main character's first or last name.

THE TWIST:
(1) Use at least one book set in the state that you are spelling out (Example: if you are spelling out ALABAMA, you could use The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion - which is set in Alabama, for one of the letter A's).

OR

(2) Read a book in which the state's two-letter designation can be found listed consecutively in either the book title (using Pennsylvania as an example - Murder on Gramercy Park), or in the author's first or last name (using Pennsylvania as in example - Nicholas Sparks, Pamela Clare, Lisa Kleypas, etc). Subtitles and series titles can be used for this section.

Be sure to indicate the option you are using and the book that fits that option in your spell out.

For the hard letters Q, X, Y and Z, the letter need only be found in book title, author's first or last name, series title, or a main character's first or last name. It does not have to be the first letter.
