2021 Battle of the Books Winners

Congratulations to this year’s Battle of the Books winners! This was an entirely virtual event and hosted teams from all over the state. Students participated in tests about the booklist and heard a presentation from author, Terry Lynn Johnson. Terry writes middle grade adventures based on her experiences living in northern Ontario, Canada. She might have fallen through ice a time or two, been dragged by a dog team, blown up a wood stove, been attacked by a sloth (slowly), nearly drowned on a portage, and chased a bear with a chainsaw. Terry’s keynote left students (and teachers) laughing and craving adventure.

Thank you to all of the schools who participated in the Battle of the Books – see you next year!
