Battle of the Books Competition

“In which book” was the beginning of each question read during the 2017 Catawba County Schools Battle of the Books Elementary and Middle School Competitions. During the elementary competition at the Hickory Metro Convention Center, students, who had read 17 books, competed head-to-head to see who would take home the 2017 honors.  While the middle school competition, being held at Arndt Middle School, was a little more difficult with students reading 27 books.

 Congratulations to each participating elementary and middle school.
