Helen Ruffin, a library media specialist in DeKalb County, founded the Reading Bowl as a way to engage students with the Georgia Children’s Book Awards and encourage them to read. She therefore created a unique reading competition in game format, called the Reading Bowl, using books from the nominee list.

Students at every grade level—elementary, middle, and high—are asked questions from respective book lists in a quiz bowl format. Top teams from the DCSD Reading Bowl have the opportunity to compete at the regional, divisional, and state levels should they advance.

Winners from the event will have the chance to compete at the Metro Regional Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl on Feb. 9 at Clayton State University in Morrow.

Middle and High School

Registration – 8 a.m.
