Battle of the Books

The moderator is pointing towards the screen that says '2016 Green Battle of the Books Championship Match'.

Battle of the Books is a middle school competition sponsored by Gallaudet University. There are three groups in the competition. The groups consist of students who read at the 3rd/4th grade levels, 5th/6th grade levels, and the 7th and above grade levels. The group names are as follows (in no particular order): Buff (one of Gallaudet's primary colors), Blue (one of Gallaudet's primary colors), and Green (named after Gallaudet's storied Kendall Green). There are three parts to the competition: the Preliminary competition; the Playoffs; and the National competition.

The purpose of the Battle of the Books is to promote literacy amongst Deaf and Hard of Hearing middle school students; promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship; and to encourage critical thinking skills amongst middle school students.
