Local elementary school students across Vigo County took part in the Battle of the Books reading competition on Friday.
It took place at Meadows Elementary School.
Over a hundred students with teams representing every elementary school in the district took part.
They read 20 Young Hoosier Books and then answered questions about them.
Organizers say it’s an intense, but friendly competition.
The GE 1st place winner was Devaney Elementary and the GT 1st place winner was Dixie Bee.
Middle schools will take part in the competition next week.
