Congratulations to all who participated in this year’s Battle of the Books. Special thanks to all coaches, teens, parents, judges, officials and all volunteers who helped to make this year’s Battle of the Books a success.
The 2017 Battle of the Books was held on Saturday, August 12 and Monday August 14, 2017 at the Student Activities Center in Stony Brook University.
The Suffolk County Battle of the Books program is an inter-library competition between teams of teens focused on 8 young adult novels. Teams can be no larger than 6 players (students entering grades 6-9 in the fall) but have been as small as 2 players. Held in August, the competition is divided into three back-to-back 4-hour Regional Competitions and an Awards Night. At the Regional Competition, each team gets to participate in 4 separate rounds. Each round covers 2 of the 8 books and each team is given 20 questions per round. Titles to be covered in each round are announced in advance but not specifically mentioned in the questions. At the Awards Night, the top scoring teams will compete for the County Championship.
