GREAT READERS BOWL COMPETITION
Middle School Division


WHO:
Calling all DCHE 6th-8th Grade Readers! DCHE has been invited to participate in the Greater Atlanta Christian School - GREAT READERS BOWL Competition! Reading Bowl Teams are comprised of 5 members.

WHAT:
The Great Readers Bowl is a quiz style competition based on a specific book list.  The purpose of this Bowl is to encourage and promote the love of good books. The event is planned as a fun friendly competition which should make each student proud of their efforts. 

Competition Structure: 
The number of rounds will depend on the number of teams that register; last year we played 7 rounds. Each round consists of two teams in a classroom answering questions about the books. Individual rounds last approximately 15 to 20 minutes. There will be two types of rounds: Buzzer Rounds, and Teamwork rounds.

  • Buzzer Rounds: a question is read and the first player to buzz in, answers the question with no help from their team. If they are incorrect, the opposing team may try to answer. Only one team scores a point for any given question.
  • Teamwork Round: Each team is given a set of questions which they can work together on until time is called. All correct answers score a point.

WHEN: 
  • Practice: Practices will take place in person weekly on Wednesdays at 1:30 PM
  • Competition: We will meet for the competition on January 27th, 2024 at 8:30 AM
