Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl

Georgia Children’s Book Award List – Go to Middle Schools

**You will read the books for Grades 6-8 on page two of the link above.**

There will be some type of competition this year! If you are interested in participating, please begin reading the books on the list. They will also be available for checkout via our Curbside Service Checkout starting on September 2nd.

The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team reads the 10 books on the Georgia Children’s Book Award List and competes in a quiz-bowl style competition in January over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. Students are required to write 20 questions per book so that we may use them to practice leading up to the competition.

Each student earns points leading up to the competition and the team that goes to competition will consist of the students with the highest number of points. There will be five members on the team and five alternates. 

Interested students should start reading the required books over the summer, if possible. Please do not worry about writing any questions as there is a formula that we will go over next year. Mrs. Wickline will have a meeting for interested students early in the 2020-2021 school year.

Practices are before school on a day that works for everyone.

Please email Mrs. Wickline for more information at taylor.wickline@cobbk12.org.
