On Tuesday, March 27th, teams from all HCS elementary schools competed in the annual Elementary Battle of the Books Competition. Teams consist of up to 12 students who each read from a list of 15 books to prepare for competition.
Battle of the Books is a statewide competition sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association. It is a team-based, quiz bowl style competition in which a group of up to six students at a time work together to answer questions pulled from a list of books that has been specially chosen for that year’s competition. School teams compete against one another in their own districts, with one winner from each advancing to a regional competition.
