A-CLUE-A-DAY ACAD is a daily individual cryptic clue solving contest for schoolchildren in the country. 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!
