7th & 8th Grade Students ONLY Who Competed in Prior Battles
Student mentors are 7th & 8th grade students who have competed in previous Battle of the Books competitions. These students will use their personal experience from previous years to coach a team to better prepare for each battle. Mentors are assigned to a team, and as part of the team, will help them strategize for each battle. Mentors are expected to read all twelve books in the program, and with permission from teachers, will be allowed to sit with the audience to observe each Battle then meet with the team after each battle to review and prepare for the next Battle. If you are currently a 7th or 8th grade student who has competed in Battle of the Books competitions in previous years, and are interested in becoming a Student Mentor, please click on the Student Mentor Application form link below and return the completed form to your school library.
