Winners of Socorro ISD’s Battle of the Bluebonnets Announced


Socorro ISD hosted its first Battle of the Bluebonnets reading competition in which students participated in a trivia-style contest with rounds of questions about Texas Bluebonnet Award books.  Winners were announced late Friday afternoon.

First place – Escontrias ElementaryBluebonnet 1st 2nd 3rd

Second place – Myrtle Cooper Elementary

Third place – Paso Del Norte School

The first place team received a traveling trophy to be displayed in their school library until next year’s competition. Each team member also received a trophy. Medals were awarded to second and third place and certificates will be given to every participating student.

Student teams from every elementary school in the district participated. The teams included five students from third, fourth, and fifth grade. Each student read books from the Texas Bluebonnet Award reading list, while each campus librarian is the coach of their school’s Bluebonnet team.

The Texas Bluebonnet Award was created in 1979 to encourage children to read more books, explore a variety of current books and identify their favorite books. Children read books from the Texas Bluebonnet Award reading list and in January vote on their favorite. The author of the book with the most votes across Texas wins the Texas Bluebonnet Award, which is given by the Texas Library Association in April.

SISD’s Battle of the Bluebonnets is the first contest of its kind in El Paso.
