Children under age 18 must have parents’ or guardians’ permission to register and enter the MILLION DOLLAR WORDS contest.
(3) Contestants will be given 10 words to spell, using only their cursor, without the aid of any mechanical or electronic device, to select and click on the numbers on the MILLION DOLLAR WORDS keypad that contain the letters necessary to spell the words. For example, the word "CASH" would be spelled by selecting and clicking the numbers 2 2 7 4 on the MILLION DOLLAR WORDS keypad. If there is more than one recognized spelling for a word, the correct spelling will be deemed to be the "preferred" (first listed) spelling for the word contained in the Merriam-Webster's 3rd New International Dictionary, Unabridged.
(4) Each word will be pronounced twice. You can begin spelling as soon as you hear a word. If you make a mistake spelling a word, you can use the "BACK" button to erase a "letter" or the "HEAR" button to repeat a word. Click the "ENTER" button as soon as you finish spelling each word. Limit six entries per person during each contest.
