FOA Middle School Battle of the Books Team Ties for First Place at State Competition

Congratulations to the 2016-17 Middle School Battle of the Books team for tying for first place in the SCISA State competition on November 30, 2016. The team, comprised of 18 students, began reading books in May to prepare for the Regional competition that was held on Nov. 9, 2016. This activity is completely managed by the students including; planning who reads which of the 20 books, running practices, and deciding who is onstage to answer questions each round. They were confident and showed great maturity when challenging the judges’ decisions on incorrect answers. We are so proud of the team and this impressive feat!
