Battle of the Books
 
Battle of Books 2019Alma Area School 5th graders participate voluntarily in the Battle of the Books each school year.  It's sponsored by WEMTA (Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association).  This battle encourages students to read 20 new books chosen by WEMTA each season. The list consists of award winners from three categories:  picture books to novels. 
Students read from October through February.  The last week in February, students from all over the state compete in the final state battle.  This contest successfully promotes reading in our district and throughout the state.
