Battle of The Books

May 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

REGISTRATION FOR BATTLE OF THE BOOKS IS FULL!!

The Robert H. Jackson Center is inviting grade school educators to bring your team to our Battle of the Books event on Saturday, May 14, 2022 beginning at 2pm. We are looking for teachers to lead up to eight teams of students in grades 6-8 who are looking for some fun with reading! Students get to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of a group of pre-selected books they have read in preparation for the battle.

Will you gather a team and join us? Ideally, a team would have a total of about ten students. However, teams have been as large as 15 and as small as three. The Teacher/Coach of the winning team will receive a gift certificate and each winning team member will receive a $20 gift certificate to Off the Beaten Path bookstore in Lakewood, NY.

Sign up your students today and enjoy a great day of spirited fun, music, snacks, and a deep dive into the exciting world of reading!

This event was made possible, in part, by the generosity of our donors, the Rotary Club of Jamestown, and the Northern Chautauqua County Community Foundation.

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, and will close on or before Monday, January 10, 2022.

The Jackson Center will provide each team one set of the books on the adjacent list for this free event:

First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Perez
