The annual Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading competition sponsored by the Schoolcraft Community Library. The Battle is open to fourth, fifth and sixth graders. The competition consists of judges asking detailed questions about books from a predetermined reading list.
Each “Battle Team” may consist of five to seven students, though six team members are encouraged. The team members must provide the correct answer and book author to score points. Teams with the highest cumulative score after 21 questions (3 rounds of 7 questions each) during the Preliminary Battle will earn the right to participate in the Semi-Final Battle later in the day.
The teams with the highest scores following Semi-Final Battles participate in the “Grand Battle” to determine the final winner!
