Reading Bowl

Walton’s Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team was established in 2012. Since then, the team has earned numerous awards, including a first place title at the 2019 state tournament.

Each year members read twenty Georgia Peach Books to prepare for the competition season, which runs from January through March. During each round of competition, students are quizzed on their book knowledge. Moderators pose ten questions per round, and players, working in teams of five,  buzz in as fast as they can to answer each question.
