Tournament Standings

Thank you to all coaches, students and families.  YOU make this tournament a fun, friendly, supportive success!

Everyone is a winner in Battle of the Books!

For more than thirty years, “Everyone is a winner in Battle of the Books!” has been the mantra in the Battle of the Books Tournament and Celebration. This year Battle of the Books will honor all team members who read great books and came together in friendly competition demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of the books they read with a new format for recognizing all readers.  An Olympic style award system will be in place.  All teams will be honored as winners with the final six battle total score* determining whether a team places in the gold, silver, or bronze category.  With the change to the Olympic style award system, first through sixth places will not be awarded.  

The score range for each Olympic category is as follows:  

Gold – 246 to 226 points

Silver – 225 to 206 points

Bronze – 205 points

Each team will receive a commemoration for their school and each team member will receive a keepsake.  

Congratulations 2017 Battle of the Books Tournament!
