Sooke's First Scrabble Tournament
Thank you for your support!
 
Congratulations to Wilf Wenzel, Sooke's Grand Scrabbler for 2015! And thank YOU for participating, spectating, and donating. We raised over $1,100 for our local literacy programs and our "munch card" initiative for EMCS students who'd otherwise go hungry during the school day.

TED Talk: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.
