Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB)

Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a voluntary reading program implemented in schools across the state of Oregon. It is organized in three divisions, Grade 3-5, Grade 6-8, and Grade 9-12. Participating students form teams, read a pre-selected list of titles (16 books annually in each division), and compete to prove their knowledge & comprehension of characters and events in the books.

Due to COVID-19, OBOB’s 2021 regional and state competition will not take place. Click here for more information.

Do you love reading and fostering a love of reading among students? PTA is recruiting for a lead to run OBOB at BCS for the 2020-2021 school year. OBOB will look and feel different this year but let’s continue this special tradition!

The OBOB program at BCS is an extracurricular program managed and supported by parent volunteers. The program is intended to be fun and to encourage a love of reading and foster positive relationships surrounding books.
