2018 Battle of the Books Competition

2018 Battle of the Books Competition
Posted on 03/13/2018

On Monday, March 12th students from 16 local school districts, including our very own talented Argyle team, participated in the 2018 Battle of the Books! The competition took place at the Palamountain Hall at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs.

This is the sixth year this competition has taken place but the first year our Argyle team attended! They were among the 62 teams of students in grades 3 to 6 that were tested on overall knowledge of a selection of books, of which they were asked to provide the title and author. Clues included everything from the plot to the theme, to various details of storyline characters. Each team was given only 20 seconds to provide an answer.

With the high-pressure ‘round robin’ style of questioning, we are incredibly proud of our Argyle students for giving it their all and participating. We love to see student’s dedication to reading and the Battle of the Books is a great way to make reading fun. This competition has inspired us to get reading and win first place next year. Watch out 2019 Battle of the Books, here we come! 1 2
