BATTLE OF THE BOOKS TEAM TAKES HOME SECOND PLACE
Six students answered challenging trivia questions about the books on this year's Lone Star reading list as they competed in the third annual Battle of the Books competition hosted by Region 13 Education Center. The Bibliowarts, read every book on the list and studied for several months to prepare for the competition. They designed a Harry Potter themed poster, dressed in Harry Potter attire, and had a blast! The competition was grueling, but they held strong and secured a tie for second place. Losing the first place position by only one point to the Literary Lions (last year's winners). The team is already preparing for next year so that they can take home the gold!
Team members: Grace Mauk, Kinsey Neas, Lindsay Chong, Patricio Montemayor, Calvin Moy, & Anabelle Mahadevan
