Battle of the Books

  •     Sunshine State Young Readers Awards   / Battle of the Books
    Woodlawn library promotes a lifelong love of reading by encouraging students to read the 13 Sunshine State Award titles and through participation in the Pinellas County Schools Battle of the Books program.  The Battle of the Books program is introduced to students in grades 3-5.  Students are given several months to read the titles and will be administered a qualifying test to determine teams.  Questions are based on plots, settings and characters.  The school battle will be early April and usually consists of 4 teams.  School battles and subsequent regional battles determine which school teams will be represented at the district battle in April.  The first-place team carries home a traveling trophy to house at its school until the next year’s battle.
    Here is the List for the 2024-2025 School and District Elementary Battle of the Books
