“The Scrabble game has a diverse, passionate community of players and it was an honor for Hasbro to host this year’s group of incredibly talented student competitors,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, vice president of marketing, Hasbro Gaming.
“We thank all of the participating teams, their coaches and families and congratulate our champions on their sportsmanship and skills.”
