Reading Olympics

The 2016 Reading Olympics teams dominated in this year’s Reading Olympics competition. The three Central Bucks South teams devoured the pages of the forty-five books on this year’s list and were able to emerge victorious with two of the teams coming home with blue and red ribbons.

Reading Olympics is a competition in which teams answer questions based on numerous books from a list in order to earn points for either a blue, red, green, or yellow ribbon, in order of prestige. At the competition, each team goes through three rounds of twenty questions whilst competing against a team from a different school. This year’s competition took place on March 31st at New Hope-Solebury High School.

Reading Olympics is not only a way to read new books, but also a social event to meet others who share a passion for reading. “I love being able to spend time with other people who love to read just like me. It gives me an opportunity to make new friends and catch up with the old,” says CB South junior, Sona George. “Reading Olympics introduces me to wonderful new books each year.”

CB South sophomore Hanna Mehlmann has been participating in Reading Olympics since she was in fifth grade. “I have made many friends through [Reading Olympics] as well as read many books,” she says. “It is a great experience for anyone who loves reading!”

We congratulate our three teams on their stellar achievement in this year’s competition. Keep up the good work!
