What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books is a district-wide competition for elementary and middle school students based on the books from the Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) novels. Students are challenged to read all of the books and compete against each other in a "Battle of the Books" which tests students' recall of the year's SSRYA books. 

  • Students will read the SSYRA books and compete with sportsmanship and a positive attitude.
