Battle of the Books (BoB) is a reading competition where schools compete against each other in a head-to-head quiz competition. Each team consists of 12 members, who compete in varying groups of six at a time. Each group answers questions about the 15 books selected for elementary school this year.
The competition is at UNC Greensboro on March 5, 2018. Fourth- and fifth-grade students earn points in mock challenges and individual quizzes during practice to secure their spots on the team. Applicants are notified before Winter Break if they made it to the next round of tryouts for the team. By the end of January, the 12 members will be selected based on their accumulated points.
