A, voluntary, national reading incentive program for students in grades 3-8
encourage students to read good literature from different genres
practice of good sportsmanship, the development of leadership skills
and just plain FUN.
What Is The "Battle?"
The "Battle" is a full day tournament or game in which students' teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list.
The day begins with all participating local Catholic schools meeting in the HNM hall, where they are given a morning snack and directions for the day.
Then, the participants are assigned to a team made up of students from participating schools, given a mascot, and sent to their first round of the "Battle." They play several rounds, each against a different team.
At the end of the morning, points are totaled and the two teams with the most points are invited to a "Grand Battle" after lunch, with the other teams as their audience.
