2018 District Battle of Books Competition - This year's District Battle of the Books Competition was indeed epic! One hundred four students participated from 7 schools and two time zones. Months of preparation led students to battle it out in person and over video teleconferencing (VTC) on Feb 14th-16th. Many battles came down to the crucial last questions in order to crown a champ in each grade level category. There were certainly no losers as these book warriors left the battle ground knowing that gave everything they had and that the prize...pizza and pool party, await them in the near future (April 27th).
