2016-17 BOB Team Preparing for Competition

After reading books on the list and memorizing the titles and authors, students prepare for competition by answering questions that begin with the phrase: "In which book...?" We compete against RMS at the county level, and the winner of that contest will advance to Regionals in the early Spring.
