Reading Olympics Banner

The goal of the Reading Olympics is to increase students’ reading for enjoyment and increase reading skills.  Students collaborate with their teammates to read forty to fifty books that have been selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom teachers.  These professionals read the books and write questions which teams of students answer during the competition.  The Olympics are primarily a celebration of reading rather than a contest.  All participants are awarded ribbons.  Since the teams generate much excitement about this event, the experience is rewarding for everyone involved.

Preliminary registration is now open! Deadline for submission is: November 18,2016.
