Book Blitz

Book Blitz is a book competition that students in all Canyons middle schools engage in.  It follows a similar format to the national Battle of the Books.  Each middle school creates teams of students who share in the reading of the selected 20 titles.  In the spring, the various teams battle to determine which two teams will represent their middle school in the district Book Blitz battle usually held at Midvale Middle School.  The winning team receives fun prizes, a trophy, and the bragging rights to being the district team winner of Book Blitz.
