What is Book Battle ? A competition to encourage Reading!


  • Elementary Schools throughout Lee County send a 6 member team to battle out questions on each of the above books. 
  • At Diplomat we have made the finals every year & won the competition 5 times.  See more
  • At our school the TEAM TRYOUT is in January for any 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who have read all 15 books. 
  • The tryout is a timed mutliple choice test and the 6 students who score the highest make the team. 
  • Usually over 100 students try to read all 15 books.  Reading all 15 by January is hard to do so many students begin in the summer.
  • At tryout there is close to 25 students who have read all 15 books.
