Battle of the Books (BotB) is a reading incentive program for students in the third through twelfth grades.
The Battle questions are selected from the Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) books each year for elementary and middle schools. Battle questions for high school students are selected from the Florida Teens Read state list.
At the elementary level, the schools are divided geographically for the competition. This is due to the popularity of the event and the large number of schools participating.
