    The fine print. Prize money will not be paid as a wad of cash in an envelope, but instead paid to parents to assist with accommodation/travel expenses to attend any future World Youth Scrabble Championship or Australian Junior Scrabble Championship. A player cannot win more than one prize from the Prize Pool, e.g. if the "overall winner" is in the U-18 category, then the "U-18 winner" prize goes to the next finishing player. The organisers reserve the right to change the age categories depending on the number of entries received in each category.

    Note also: Each year, several youth players are selected by ratings to take part in the World Youth Scrabble Championship. In 2024 it is in Sri Lanka but the selection process for 2024 will finish on 31 July. See candidates
