Battle of the Books 2021
DCLA Virtual Battle of the Books 2021
DC-area schools can participate in this year's Virtual Battle of the Books through Kahoot. In partnership with Junior League of Washington, questions were designed using titles from the 2021 Three Stars Book Award nominees in the Upper Elementary and Middle School categories. Play at home or stage a virtual battle with students!
Middle School Battle of the Books (100 questions)
Upper Elementary Battle of the Books (80 questions)
The BOB (Battle of the Books) is a district-wide reading motivation program based upon the current Three Stars nominated titles. This program is sponsored by DCLA SLS (District of Columbia Library Association School Library Section). Students in 4th-8th grades participate in this competition by simply reading the Three Stars titles listed on the DCLA SLS website and answering questions.
DCLA SLS’s BOB mission is to encourage a culture of reading and introduce students to new and exciting titles that they might not normally read. This competition has been moved virtually for the 2021-2022 school year and will be housed on the DCLA SLS website this coming March. Once the link is live, an announcement will go out to all school LMS for students to participate.
DCLA SLS recognizes that the in-person BOB competition is an annual event that staff and students enjoy and look forward to each year. We hope to resume our in-person competition during the 2021-2022 school year.
Middle school participants display their answers during the 2019 event at Dunbar HS
