Bethel Elementary School wins The 2016-2017 Elementary Battle of the Books Competition!!!

On Thursday, March 23rd, eight elementary school teams in Haywood County competed in the annual Battle of the Books Competition.  Teams consist of up to 12 students who each read from a list of 18 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.

Bethel Elementary School won this year’s competition and will go on to compete in the regional competition, held on Tuesday, April 25th, in Asheville.
