Results: Escambia Schools Battle Of The Books

May 16, 2018

Battle of the Books is an annual competition that challenges students to read a set of books designated as Sunshine State Readers for grades 3-8 or Florida Teen Reads for grades 9-12.

Teams are formed at each grade level to compete and see who remembers the most facts, or who can make the best comparisons and connections between the books.
