Congratulations to Morgan's team for winning the Myers Oregon Battle of the Books competition at Myers. Starting in January, thirty-two teams of four students each competed in a "jeopardy like" setting answering questions from sixteen books chosen by library professionals from across the state of Oregon.
The final two teams with the most points at the end of two rounds of play, was Morgan's team including Annie, Haley, and Maggie and Jacob's team including Anthony, Jack, and Josh. Monday, Feb. 24th, these teams squared off for a thirty-two question "battle" with Morgan's team gaining additional points in the content question section of the "battle." After announcing the 1st place team all OBOB players enjoyed a well deserved ice cream banana split sundae in the Library served by helpful volunteers, Ms. Brookins, Mr. Bauman, Ms. Bauman, Ms. Edinger, Ms. Maurer, Ms. Chamblin, Ms. Gonzalez-Martinez, Ms. Hamler-Dupras, and Ms. Smith.
Morgan's team will compete next in the Region 2 OBOB competition at Lincoln Elementary School in Woodburn. This competition will include OBOB teams from Benton, Linn, Marion, Polk counties. The three teams from this competition will move forward to the state competition at Chemeketa Community College on April 12th.
Thank you to Library Media Program Director Steven Cox and Ms. Smith for judging the competition and Ms. Edinger for her scorekeeping assistance. Thank you to Ms. Van Cleave for being in the Library during these competitions.
