Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program to promote the love of reading among students.

Moore County Schools (MCS) held its Middle School Battle of the Books tournament at the Robert E. Lee Auditorium at Pinecrest High School on March 11, 2022. Students were excited to compete face to face for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students work with each other to compete in a fun, academic-based competition that helps them improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials and acquire a broader knowledge base.


Prior to the competition, The Sandhills Enrichment Fund; an affiliate of the English Speaking Union presented a generous grant that will be used to purchase books for future Battle of the Books tournaments. MCS thanks the following personnel (pictured below) for their contribution:


   Clem Jowett – President, English Speaking Union
   Nick Christopher – Board Member, English Speaking Union

   Fran Grandinetti – Chair, Sandhills Enrichment Fund

   Linda Sapp – Board Member, Sandhills Enrichment Fund
