Granite District Battle of the Books 2016-2017 Competition Winners

On April 13, 2017, over 50 student teams from 18 different elementary schools in Granite School District converged on Gearld Wright Elementary for the first annual Granite District Battle of the Books competition. ┬áStudent teams went head-to-head in this “Family Feud”-style game, in which their knowledge of the 15 books on the official 2016-2017 reading lists was put to the test.

We congratulate all of the students who read and participated in the battles, whether in their school or at the district competition. We thank all of the media clerks, teachers, administrators, parent volunteers, and others who tirelessly supported this program and inspired our students to find excitement in reading.

Check out the winners of our 2016-2017 competitions!

  1. Battle of the Books is such a great program! Our students loved it and are so excited for next year! If your school didn’t participate this year, you should seriously consider doing it next year.

  2. I did not have students that participated in the Battle of the Books. I was able to help with the competition. I was great! I loved watching the students get excited and the confidence it helped build in students was amazing. Nikki and all of the others that helped to organize this and carry it through, they rock!

  3. HUGE thanks to Nikki and others who spent so many hours organizing and implementing the Battle of the Books. Our school (Fox Hills) chose to participate at a school level only and had great success.
