Join Book Olympiad (formerly Battle of the Books)!

Sign up is now open for Book Olympiad (formerly Battle of the Books) in the Media Center from January 3-12.

You must take the Interest Survey to secure a position on our team. Taking the survey counts as signing up.

Mrs. Hutchings will contact you with more information once the survey is complete. Welcome to OMMS Book Olympiad, fellow bibliophiles!

Our first practice to all who want to be a part of the team is on Tuesday 1/16. Once the team is finalized, we will practice 1-2x a week for 1 hour in Mrs. Hutchings’ room G6, quizzing each other on selected book trivia. Practice dates are flexible, but are normally on Tuesday and Thursdays. Conflicts with after school activities are OK. We’ve had many a teammate with sports, music, etc. that conflicts with our practice times. We can make it work!

Remember, y’all, read the county’s selected titles for this year’s competition. Re-read them. Bask in their awesomeness. Enjoy the heck out of them. Talk about them. Get your friends to read them. In short, know them inside and out.

As always, if you have questions, contact Mrs. Hutchings in G6 or at shutchings@shelbyed.org.
