We’ve been publishing a Word of the Day every school day since our blog began, and in 2013, just as we were about to hit 1,000 words, we announced our first Vocabulary Video Contest.

We liked the results so much that we brought it back in 2014, and now, for a third time, in 2016.

So, along with our annual collaborators for Word of the Day — the linguists who run — we invite you to create a short video that defines or teaches any of the words in our collection, which is now nearly 1,500 words strong.
