The Newbery Quiz Bowl is an annual reading competition unique to Hawai’i island. Students in the 4th-7th grades are eligible to form quiz bowl teams to represent their school or library in the competition.
Team members are expected to read selected Newbery Award-winning books, and answer questions about the books. Students must know answers, such as the author, title, main character, and important events of selected books.
