Gallery+Story: Battle of the Bluebonnets sparks friendly reading competition

EPISD’s very first Pat Arnold Battle of the Bluebonnets on Thursday helped kicked off what is sure to become an annual tradition among students who love reading.

The contest — which asks participating school teams to answer questions about the books named as finalists for the Texas Bluebonnet Award by the Texas Library Association — had its first edition in the EPISD Boardroom with several elementary schools participating.

EPISD librarians organized the contest and named it after Pat Arnold, a former EPISD librarian who passed away last year and had shown tremendous dedication to literacy in the District.

Round by round students answered questions about books like “Amina’s Voice” by Hena Khan and “Bravo! Poems About Amazing Hispanics” by Margarita Engle in front of a crowd of book fans from throughout the District.

In the end the champions of the first edition of the EPISD Pat Arnold Battle of the Bluebonnets was Mesita Elementary.  Second place went to Fannin Elementary and third place was Bradley Elementary.
