The Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is open to students in grades four through twelve across the state. Competitions are held at the local, regional and divisional levels with the winning teams from the Divisional Bowls competing in March for the State Championship of the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. When more than two local schools want to compete at the regional level, a local competition must be held to see which two teams will represent the school district. The Gordon County Reading Bowl competition for the elementary schools was held on Monday, January 30th at the Gordon County College and Career Academy. Teams from Belwood, Fairmount, Redbud, Sonoraville and Swain were all represented at the county bowl. First place went to the team from Belwood Elementary, and second place went to the team from Swain Elementary. These two teams moved on to the North Region competition that was held on Saturday, February 4th in Gainesville. Of the fourteen teams competing, Belwood Elementary's team walked away with 2nd place. These students will go on to the Divisional Bowl in later in the month.
In addition to the two elementary teams competing at the regional level, Redbud Middle and Sonoraville High also sent teams to compete in Gainesville. Sonoraville High School won 3rd place in region competition. Full Story
