• OBOB Needs More Help!
    The Oregon Battle of the Books Committee at Duniway is looking for more members to

    program at Duniway is a hit each year. With 20+ Teams practicing and competing
    together, last year 93 students participated! Any support or help is welcome. Please
    email Emily Miller, emylou104@gmail.com, with questions or interest, and sign up for
    the OBOB Committee on Konstella! Thank you!

    What is OBOB?

    Oregon Battle of the Books at Duniway is a free state-wide reading competition for 3rd
    through 5th Graders. Teams of 4 students work together to read and study 16 books on
    the OBOB Book List and then face off in “Battles” against other teams to try and answer
    the most questions about the books correctly. The Battles will take place in late January
    and February of 2024. It is a fast-paced fun and friendly competition bracket, the final
    Duniway Team standing gets to represent our school at Regionals with a chance to go
    on to the State Competition! OBOB is a great opportunity to find some new favorite
    books and bond over the love of reading with friends.
