It is designed to teach them the way to solve cryptic crosswords and hone their skills by daily practice. For young crossword buffs, ACAD is the right forum to begin with.

Because it has been scientifically proved that solving crosswords improves a person’s analytical abilities and vocabulary. Starting the same at a young age will give a child an edge over others in curricular as well as extra-curricular pursuits.

The ACAD contest is a first of its kind opportunity for students to compete with their counterparts all over India and in the process boost their vocabulary, reasoning and wit, and of course, a daily prize too!

The Competitive Phase of ACAD 2018 would commence from 16th January 2018 and end on the 31st October 2018. The points on the Champions’ Gallery would be computed for the Competitive Phase only.

However, ACAD would continue without any break, round the year, for the benefit of young students who love solving clues as a matter of habit, on a daily basis.

We wish all the ACAD solvers, parents, guardians teachers and school authorities, a very stimulating ACAD 2018 season ahead.

How to go about it?
** One clue is posted online each day on the website crypticsingh.com. This year, it can also be accessed on mobile phones through the ‘ACAD’ app which can be downloaded on Android smartphones and tablets. Students need to register themselves on the website in order to participate in the contest.

** The clues are posted at 3:30 pm each day and entries for the same are accepted till 3 pm the following day. The schedule ensures that it does not disturb the daily routine of school-going children. One among the correct entries is chosen as the Lucky Winner of the day and awarded a gift hamper. The gifts are sent to the respective schools to be handed over to the students.

** The first 100 students who crack the clue every day earn points ranging from 100 to 1, in that order. The cumulative score is upgraded every day and the first 100 students are listed on the Champions’ Gallery (CG) on the website. The leaders of the CG get rewarded every month.

** At the end of the year, and in-between, students with the highest scores would be tested offline and felicitated. It is important, therefore, that the students remain in the contest round-the-year, as points for each day matter. We hope the event brings to the fore young crossword talent in schools across the country.
