Boulder Valley School District

Battle of the Books

Awards Table

Battle of the Books is a Quiz Bowl Style Competition for students in grades 3-12. Yes, it is a competition, but the purpose is to foster a love of reading! The goal of Battle of the Books is to teach students how to work together in a group for a common goal, expose them to award-winning pieces of literature, and encourage a high volume of reading inside and outside of the classroom. Students should visit your school Librarian to inquire about joining a team.

Note: Not all competitions are offered at every school. Check with your school to see if these competitions are offered.
