Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together usually in groups to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions. However, the structure, format, and rules of the competitions may vary depending on the educational goals, student needs, local resources, and personal preferences at various school sites, school districts, county libraries, or offices of education.
Battle of the Books is a very fun organization that any student may join. Students read a selected list of books and then meet regularly as a group to discuss them. In the spring, the group attends the county-wide Battle of the Books where they compete against other middle schools to see who knows the books the best. The winners of this contest move on to the state competition.
The book selections for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be announced soon.
