The Rules

The competition ends on March 28, 2019 at 2:45 pm. Final prizes will be awarded on March 29, 2019.

Teams must maintain an 85 percent or higher quiz average to receive full credit for all 
points earned. For example, if a team has an overall quiz average of less than 85%, then the total team points are multiplied by that average. A team with 1,000 points and an 80% quiz average, will only receive 800 points.

Students who do not adequately help their team earn points are ineligible for prizes.

Students may only take tests in their designated reading ranges.

An entire class may not take a quiz on the same book during the challenge period (except kindergarten).

Prizes will be awarded for every 750 AR team points.

750 Points – Cool Shades Day Students may wear fun glasses or goggles to

school. (March 6, 2019)

1,500 Points – Bookmark Time! Students will decorate and color bookmarks

during their library class time.

2,250 Points – Mismatch Day Students may wear crazy mismatched clothes.

Please do not wear tank tops, spaghetti straps, or anything inappropriately

revealing. Use the school dress code as a guide. Shoes must have hard soles,

closed toes, and heels may be no higher than 2 inches. No flip-flops, Heelys or

cleats. (The award date will be announced.)

3,000 Points – Western Day Students may wear their western duds to school.

Follow the same guidelines outlined for Mismatch Day. Absolutely no guns of any kind, holsters, spurs or ropes. This prize will be awarded March 29, 2019.
