  Email   Print

Murfreesboro City Schools will host the fifth annual Boro Book Battle on Thursday, April 11 as part of School Library Month. The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Hobgood Elementary gymnasium. Students from across the district will compete against one another in a quiz-bowl-style tournament to test their knowledge of books on the Volunteer State Book Award list.

Librarians from the Murfreesboro City Schools work with the student teams throughout the school year to prepare for this friendly competition. Teams were formed from 4th-6th grade students who expressed interest in being a part of this core group of readers.

Four team members will compete in each tournament category and each series will consist of multiple choice and matching questions. Students are responsible for individually reading each of the books and school librarians help prep the students for the competition.

The winning school will proudly display the Boro Book Battle Trophy and claim bragging rights for a year until the trophy is up for grabs next year.

Murfreesboro City Schools is a district of twelve schools committed to the academic and personal success of each child.
