Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books is a competition organized by CEC librarian Ms. Allen.  This is the first year for the program which involved four participating schools throughout CCRSB. Students in participating schools read twelve books from which questions were taken. The books comprising the battle are former Teen Reader’s Choice Award titles. The battles were held at CEC on 30 May 2016.

The Battle of the Books was undertaken this year as a means of celebrating five years of the Teen Reader’s Choice Award. The battle is also seen as a way to encourage and promote the joy of reading while fostering an atmosphere of teamwork and cooperation.

The competition was fierce! The final results, after six rounds of competition, were as follows:
1st place: Cobequid Educational Centre 
2nd place: North Colchester High 
3rd place: Hants North
4th place: Bible Hill Junior High
