The Big Island 26th Annual Newbery Quiz Bowl has been underway since last spring when our young 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th grade readers began reading the forty Newbery-medal-winning titles on this year’s list.
This year’s Newbery Quiz Bowl will be held on the west-side of the Big Island at the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort Hotel on Thursday, April 23, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This academic bowl provides a day of competition and celebration for readers and their supporters. The activities are centered around answering questions based on the reading of the American Library Association’s Newbery Medal Books. This bowl is jointly sponsored by Hawaii-Island school librarians & teachers, retirees, the U. S. Army at Pohakuloa, Waikoloa Friends of the Library, and a variety of Big Island businesses.
