Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl
Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl

The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a unique reading competition organized in a game format using the current Georgia Children’s Book Award nominees.  Several years ago, Mrs. Helen Ruffin, a library Media Specialist at Sky Haven Elementary School, in DeKalb County, Georgia, was inspired to use the books nominated for the Georgia Book Awards to encourage her students to read.  Mrs. Ruffin’s vision was to have teams comprised of students from different schools compete to test their knowledge of the selected books.  Today, the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is open to students in grades four through twelve across the state.
