We had 26 5th and 6th graders participate in the Sterling Grade School Battle of the Books tournament this year. The quiz bowl-type contest featured five teams of students answering questions about a list of books they had read and studied on their own
At the BOB tournament May 18, the winning team was the Library Olympians, pictured on the second row below: Elizabeth, Kadi, Gretchen, Kenadee, & Josie. They were undefeated. The second place team gave us a very exciting contest in the championship round. The second place winners, the Book Champs, are pictured below in the front row: Karly, Hana, Kaitlin, Billy, & Kipton.
All participants received a coupon for a free Sonic blast ice cream treat and other small prizes. The top two teams received their choice of free books. Great job, readers!
