Nebo School District's Battle of the Books!

Submitted by khristen.massic on Tue, 02/18/2020 - 09:52

We had two wonderful teams represent us last week at the Nebo School District Battle of the Books, which was held on Wednesday, February 12th, at Payson Jr. High.

What is America's Battle of the Books? Their website states, "America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together, usually in groups, to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions."

The list that was used this year featured 20 different titles! In addition, Emma Asay, Esther Corno, Sahaja Rutledge, and Alexa Shutt each read all 20 books!

Interested in participating next year? Booklists become available at the end of April or the beginning of May. The library will have all books available for checkout and Sora and Overdrive will have books available to check out digitally in the "Special Collections" area. As the list becomes available, we will post more information.

This event was featured on the Nebo School District Website as a "Where Are We Wednesday?" feature. See the post here.
