Battle of the Books Held at Washington Middle School

The Second Annual Battle of the Books took place at Washington Middle School on Thursday, April 13.

Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for grades 4-6 in which teams are encouraged to read all 12 Missouri Mark Twain award nominees and then participate in the battle to see which team knows the most about the books.  

All of the questions in the competition began with the words “In which book” and the correct answer  always was the title.

There were five rounds consisting of 10 questions in each round.

Students in grades 4-6 from all seven elementary buildings in the School District of Washington participated.

Overall, a total of 117 students participated, making up 26 teams.

South Point Elementary had six teams represented at the event. Washington West Elementary and Campbellton Elementary both had five teams. Marthasville Elementary had four teams. Clearview Elementary had three teams. Labadie Elementary had two teams. Augusta Elementary had one team.

The first-place team was SLAM (Lydia Bush, Alexandria Missey, Margaret Figas and Stella Secor) from Campbellton Elementary.

The second-place team was Pack Dorketts (Hanna Roady, Rachel Derner, Melaina Pellin and Mya Wardwell) from Washington West Elementary.
The third-place team was Hawaiian Readers (Claire Hellebusch, MacKenzie Walter, Brooklyn Hunt, Lily Schmitt and Kristen Meyer) from Marthasville Elementary‚Äč.
