Elementary Reading Competition

  • You are in the right place for 2023 Reading Competition updates!

    Each spring, the CIU10 hosts a Reading Competition for elementary school students. Questions are based on 22 age-appropriate books which the students read during the academic year. Students are given the opportunity to compete against one another, in teams, to see who can correctly answer the most questions about the books they have read. 

    About the Reading Competition

    Teams consist of 6 to 12 students from 4th to 6th grade, a team may choose to have up to two alternates.

    All charter schools, school districts, and nonpublic schools are welcome to participate in the reading competitions.
    The reading list is available in the fall of each year.  Please see the links below for the 2023 Reading Competition Book List.
