About Gallaudet's Battle of the Books

The Gallaudet's Battle of the Books is a Middle school competition sponsored by Gallaudet University. There are three groups in the competition. The groups consist of students who read at the 2nd/3rd grade levels, 4th/5th grade levels, and the 6th and above levels. The group names are as follows (in no particular order): 

Buff- one of Gallaudet’s primary colors.  

Blue- one of Gallaudet’s primary colors.

Green- named after Gallaudet’s storied Kendall Green.

There are three parts to the competition: the Preliminary competition; the Playoffs; and the National competition. Please review the Rules and Guidelines manual for more information. The FAQ page will also answer many of your questions.

The purpose of the Battle of the Books is to promote literacy amongst Deaf and Hard of Hearing Middle School students; promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship; and to encourage critical thinking skills amongst Middle School students.
