WARRENTON — Warrenton Grade School will host a regional Oregon Battle of the Books competition Saturday.

Teams from Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook and Washington counties have read up to 16 books. They will answer questions on the content in a round robin-style competition. The top teams compete in the state finals April 7 at Chemeketa Community College in Salem.

“Participation in this competition fosters a love of reading in students and can generate much excitement about academic achievement,” Diana Widdows, a library media specialist at the grade school, said in a release. “The program continues to grow each year to the point now where thousands of students participate at the school level in this important literary enterprise.”
