Battle of the Books

Fourteen local high schools and eleven middle schools from Erie, Crawford, and Warren counties will be competing in the Battle of the Books, an annual reading competition for which the students prepare all year.  Each team must be prepared to answer questions on a list of books provided to them at the beginning of the school year.  Questions are prepared by Gannon's School of Education students. Teams compete head-to-head and earn points for each correct answer.  At the end of the day, awards are given to the top three teams at the high-school level and the top three teams at the middle-school level.

Please contact Gannon School of Education interim director, Janice Whiteman, at 814-871-7497 or for information about hosting the event.
