The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl ("HRRB") is a unique reading competition offered to all students at McDonough Middle School. The competition was created by Helen Ruffin, a media specialist in Dekalb County, who wanted to increase the love of reading through a fun and exciting competition.

The HRRB competition uses questions from the Georgia Children's Book Award Nominees in a quiz bowl-like format. There are four competitions that take place: District, Regional, Divisional, and State. At each round, only the top two schools move on to the next competition. We are looking forward to giving it our all, and doing well throughout the competition rounds.

Official HRRB rules state that only one team can be sponsored by a school. Our team consists of not more than five players and five alternates. Alternates may be switched out between rounds. We select the 'top ten' readers out of those interested based on the following criteria:

  • All books must be read

  • 20 Questions/Answers turned in for each book read so we can quiz each other

  • Virtual Meeting Attendance
