Oregon Battle of the Books

The Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a statewide program to encourage reading for enjoyment, broaden reading interests, increase comprehension, and promote cooperative learning. Students in grades 3 through 8 form teams and read from the list of 3rd – 5th OBOB books and 6th-8th OBOB books.  The teams compete in Jeopardy-style “battles” at Irvington. The team with the best score moves on to represent our school in battles against other teams from the state. The Irvington battles are held in January and February and the regional competition is in March.
