What is it?

The Ultimate Book Challenge is a reading competition designed to improve reading and comprehension while also building enthusiasm for reading. Students will compete individually and in teams to show their knowledge of 8 preselected books.

Who can compete?

Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade are eligible for the competition.

How will teams be formed? All participants who have read a minimum of three Battle books will take a quiz over the ALL the books. This is to give them exposure to the type of questions that they will see in the competition and allow them to make a decision of whether they are committed to continue reading and become a team member. Students that choose to continue will be placed on a Battle team. Teams will be made up of 6 students (multi and single grade level teams).

When is the schoolwide battle?

On January 11 at 1:30 pm the student Battle teams at Seven Hills will compete against each other to determine our Seven Hills Champion Battle Team.

When is the district battle?

On February 11, 6:00 pm at Northwest High School our Seven Hills Ultimate Book Challenge team will compete against the other elementary school's Battle of the Books teams to declare a district winner.
