The Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association (WEMTA) recently hosted the statewide Battle of the Books (BOTB) competition, and Pilgrim Park Middle School tied De Pere for first place, taking home the coveted state championship title! PPMS was one of 166 middle school teams from across Wisconsin to participate and was represented by students Ellie Grogan, Evelyn Roush, Lilly Meyer, Siddarth Vasudevan, and alternate Akshara Alwala at the state tournament.

“These students continued to push themselves and support each other, and I’m so proud of how far the team has come since we started in October,” reflected PPMS Library Lead & BOTB Advisor Kim Liepert. “We had over 30 students on the team this season and they all pushed their team to be their best.”

The statewide Battle of the Books program is designed to promote a love of reading among students by encouraging them to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Congratulations to all the student readers on your great work in the competition!
