Who Is Eligible to Participate in Battle of the Books?
All fourth and fifth graders in Kenosha public, charter, private, or parochial schools and homeschooled or independent teams are eligible to participate in Battle of the Books. To join Battle of the Books, schools should identify adult coaches (librarians, teachers, staff, parents, and college and high school students). After reading the Battle of the Books information and rules on this website, team coaches obtain the principal’s permission to participate, announce and promote that the school will have a Battle of the Books Team, invite interested fourth and fifth grader readers to join, and then complete the online registration form. Check the website Calendar page for due dates and the Coaches’ Page for team selection strategies.
