About this Event

We are having an exciting academic competition that I would like to invite your students to participate in. DMV’s Battle of the Books is an event that is focused on exposing students to books that celebrate children and authors of color. Students will form teams in groups of 4 to 6 , read and study a pre-selected book list for their grade level, and prepare to demonstrate their knowledge of each book during "battle day" on October 27, 2019. The categories of competition are:

  • Question and Answer
  • Team Spirit Wear
  • Oratorical Presentations
  • Spelling Bee
  • Debate (for our high school students)

And of course, there are prizes for the winning teams. Additional activities will occur throughout the day. They include:

  • An Art Contest
  • Face Painting
  • Build-A-Bracelet
  • S.T.E.A.M. Activities
  • Inflatable Joust
  • AFROpreneur Marketplace

Registration is $30.00 per team. Registration ends September 15, 2019. For more information and to register, please visit www.dmvbob.weebly.com
