Students tie for third in reading contest

POSTED: March 12, 2008 5:00 a.m.

A group of students from Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy’s Reading Bowl team tied for third place Saturday in the Sixth Annual Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl.

The team tied with Joseph Martin Elementary School in Liberty County in the state title competition held at the University of Georgia in Athens.

Andrea Gilbert, Enota’s media specialist who started the school’s team three years ago, said she is proud of the students.

"It was a tough competition," she said. "We’re proud of them."

The students on the team are fourth-graders Emmeline Jones and Madeline Robinson and fifth-graders Georgia Summer, Ella Vardeman, Charlie Simpson, Jonathan Perez, Emilie Gille, Noah Nutter, Nolen Bryant and Baxter Geyer.

Kittredge Elementary School in DeKalb placed first and Still Elementary School in Cobb County placed second, according to Gilbert.

The competition, sponsored by the Georgia Association of Educators, the Georgia Library Media Association and the Georgia Children’s Book Award program, features four elementary, four middle and four high schools seeking championships.

The 10-member Enota team earned its place at the competition by winning a regional competition Feb. 9 at Augusta State University. Centennial Arts Academy and Gainesville Middle School, also in the city system, each placed second at the regional event.

In the competition, elementary and middle school students have to read the 2007-08 Georgia Children’s Book Award nominees and high schoolers must read the Georgia Peach Teen Readers’ Choice Award nominees.
