Each year, Wadsworth Magnet School has try-out for our Reading Bowl Team. Students are selected based on their interest in reading and ability to recall information in a quiz-bowl format. It is open to students in grades 4-12 across the state. Our team works hard and prepare to compete against hundred of students state-wide. Students are quizzed on the 20 Georgia Book Nominees for the 2017-18 GCBA Award.

Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl History
Mrs. Helen Ruffin, a dynamic and innovative Library Media Specialist at Sky Haven Elementary School in DeKalb County, created a unique reading competition in 1986. It was called The Reading Bowl and, in a competitive game format, questioned students about the content of the 20 Georgia Book Award Nominees each year. Her vision was to have teams, comprised of students from different schools, compete to test their knowledge of the selected books.
