21-22 Ultimate Book Challenge


What is it?

Ultimate Book Challenge (UBC) is a reading competition designed to improve reading and comprehension while also building enthusiasm for reading.  Students will compete individually and in teams to show their knowledge of 10 pre-selected books.  

Who can compete?

Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade are eligible for the challenge.

When does it start?

Students will be given an introduction to the challenge during their library visit the week of September 6, 2021.  Students can sign up through Friday, September 17, 2021.

How will teams be formed?

Once sign-up closes, teams will be created by the Library Media Specialist using student input.  Participating students will be invited to attend "Lunch Bunch" information meetings and practices. 

When is the school-wide challenge?

In December (December 13-16), the students will complete in a campus competition to find our winning school team.

When is the district challenge?

On February 15, 2022 at 6:00 p.m., our Granger UBC team will compete against the district's other elementary schools' UBC teams to declare a district winner.  The competition is currently scheduled to be held at the Northwest High School Student Union.

When will the new books be announced for the 2022-2023 school year?  

Titles for the competition next year will be announced by May 2022.
