The love of reading has paid off for five Prairie Mountain students. They have earned a trip to the Oregon Battle of the Books state tournament.
The Bookworms represented Prairie Mountain against 51 other schools at the regional OBOB tournament and finished a close second by correctly answering detailed questions about the 16 OBOB books.
Fairfield and Malabon teams also reached the Sweet 16 of the regional OBOB tournament.
The Prairie Mountain Bookworms – made up of three 5th graders and two 4th graders – now get a few more weeks to re-read the OBOB books and prepare to face the other top teams in the state next month in Salem.
