Elementary and middle schools across the Davenport Community School District gathered at the Eastern Branch Library on Saturday, March 7, to compete in the grades 4-6 Battle of the Books Competition. Each year the Iowa Association of School Librarians nominate around 17 book titles for the students to read, and then in March, vote to determine which book will win the Children’s Choice Award. During the Battle of the Books each team had to answer one hundred questions based on the 17 nominated Children’s Choice Books. Eisenhower Elementary finished first with McKinley Elementary finishing in second place. The Eisenhower Elementary team will now represent the district at the regional competition on March 28. The Eisenhower team: Corbin S., Brighton H., Carter S., and Isaac T.
