Those students wishing to be part of the competing team, read all 20 books and take practice quizzes to determine the 5 person team.The online State Battle takes place in February. This year UGHS competed against 68 other high schools and took 11th place. If you would like to join the club/team, stop by the library for more information. You can also just join us for book discussions on whichever books sound interesting to you, and not worry about taking part in the competition.
