Reading Olympics

What is Reading Olympics?

Reading Olympics is an event sponsored by the Bucks County Librarians' Association to promote reading.  Teams of students read from a list of 45 books.  On the evening of April 24th teams from across the county meet to answer questions about the Reading Olympic books.  For every correct answer the team earns points.  At the conclusion of the competition, ribbons are awarded to every child--the color is determined by the team's point total.


Who is eligible for Reading Olympics?

In our elementary schools 4th and 5th graders may participate.
