    Battle of the Books

    Battle of the Books is a fun, friendly competition where teams of students read books from the Florida Teen Reads (FTR) list and then compete in a trivia contest based on those books. Students form teams of 2 to 5 students at the school division level. Team members read books from the designated list, then come together to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read. If you are interested in competing in the Battle of the Books (BOB), please see Mrs. Budd in the Media Center.
