The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a state-wide competition about BOOKS! For the 1st time, Bullard will compete in the Cobb County Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. So if you ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO READ and LOVE TO COMPETE….this is the club for YOU! Only 4th and 5th grade students are eligible.
THIS IS A BIG COMMITMENT…As a Helen Ruffin Reader, you will need to read at least 8 of the GA Book Award nominee books AND become an EXPERT on these BOOKS! You will demonstrate your expertise by writing 10 practice questions and a summary for each book read. Then, on a Saturday in January 2015, our Bullard readers will represent Bullard against other schools (only 10 students can compete at the county level). Winners at the county level will advance to the regional and then to the state competitions.

If you are interested, fill out an application (located in the Media Center), have your teacher and your parent sign it and return it to the Media Center. We will accept the first 10 students who apply, along with 2 alternates. We look forward to reading with you!
