Young Hoosier Book Award

We have various programs to encourage students to read the titles from the Young Hoosier Book Award lists for grades K-3 and 4-5.


Battle of the Books

This is a book challenge competition for fourth and fifth grade level students. The students form a four person team from their grade level. Each team member must read five books from the current Young Hoosier Award list and become an "expert" on those books they have read. During set times, grade level teams will "battle" with each other. The "battles" will last 12 minutes or 20 questions. The winning team will advance to the next level. The final "battle" will be between the winning fourth and fifth grade level teams and will be broadcasted live on WOLF TV.

Birthday Book Club

Celebrate your child's birthday with a book donation which will be enjoyed by many students for years to come.
