Competitive Reading! What Could Be More Fun?!
This year’s Spring Challenge Reading Competition was held at Easton Area High School on March 28, 2017. We had a small, but enthusiastic team! “ReadioActive” answered some tough questions and did a great job working together.
The Morning Call covered the event. They focus on the middle school competition, but they give a great overview of what the Spring Challenge Reading Competition is all about. Photo gallery. Brief video.
The Associated Libraries of Monroe County team is the only team from public libraries. All the other teams are from area high schools. The competition is open to students in grades 9-12.
Each team needs to be familiar with the books on the reading list (see below for the 2018 list)–a total of 45 books! Each team member chooses which books to read; some read a few, some read a lot! The teams compete against each other in quiz show format. If you think you might be interested in joining us for the spring 2018 competition, get started by reading anything you want from the list. Contact Mary Ann Lewis, Teen Librarian, to sign up or get more information (include your name, grade, and school). We touch base each month at our Teen Advisory Board meetings and have one or two dedicated meetings as the competition gets closer. We need 8-12 members to send a team–join us and be a part of an exciting reading adventure 🙂
