Battle Of The Book

Fourth and fifth grade students at Lester Park Elementary got an opportunity to get competitive about reading, Thursday morning. The elementary school hosted The 8th Annual Battle Of The Book Contest.

The contest challenged students to read 12 books, and compete against other teams of students on book knowledge. Parent volunteer, Tom Westrum hopes this encourages kids to read.

 “They will be introduced to books they won’t have read,”said Westrum.

According to Westrum, since starting the contest,  students have read more than 4,000  books
