LCO Students Place High in Wisconsin Battle of the Books Competition

The LCO Ojibwe School elementary students did really well at the Wisconsin Battle of the Books. The LCO participants had a total score of 330, which tied for 4th, but, according to school superintendent, Jessica “Hutch” Hutchison, after the tie breaker, LCO’s rank dropped to 11th, out of 217 teams that participated.

Hutch said the placement for the LCO students was very impressive.

According to the state website for the Battle of the Books program, “It is designed to promote a love of reading among our students. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Every question asked in a battle is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of: Name the book in which a horse and a boy are stranded on an island. It is a fun, academic-based competition that has been very successful in school districts throughout the state in encouraging students to read.”
