4th Annual DVEF BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

Fifth and sixth grade students make their own teams of two or three students (with a minimum of 4 teams per school

and a maximum of 30 teams per school) to compete and test their knowledge in three exciting school competitions

during the 2016-2017 school year. Winning teams will move on to regional, district and inter-district-wide competitions.

 Team members are assigned 4 different books to read for each competition. The top scoring team

from each school will compete in the district finale in April/May.

 

The top team that wins at the district level will go on to compete in a battle with Chandler, Gilbert,
