Every year, CNW Group and a number of "top corporations from Bay Street's financial, legal, technology and accounting sectors" competed in a Scrabble competition for a chance to win the TMX Cup. The competition is in support of Frontier College, an organization with the goal of helping people improve their literacy skills.
I was pleased to hear that on Wednesday, March 11th, the "Newsmakers," a team representing my employer CNW Group, won the TMX Cup. I was pleased about this news, but not surprised. I've seen some of the CNW team play Scrabble before, and they're pretty good. Reportedly one of the members on the team played the word "Footage" on a triple-word score for 98 points.
Great work, Newsmakers.
And congratulations to the other winners, as well as TMX Group and Frontier College for organizing another successful Scrabble contest.
