On Friday, February 17th, teams from Bethel Middle, Canton Middle, and Waynesville Middle competed in the annual Battle of the Books Competition. Teams consist of up to 12 students who each read from a list of 27 books to prepare for competition.
Battle of the Books is a statewide competition sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association. It is a team-based, quiz bowl style competition in which a group of up to six students at a time work together to answer questions pulled from a list of books that has been specially chosen for that year’s competition. School teams compete against one another in their own districts, with one winner from each advancing to a regional competition.
Canton Middle School won this year’s competition and will go on to compete in the regional competition, held on Tuesday, March 14th, in Jackson County. Congratulations to all our teams!
