Prior to reading the books each student fills out a book bracket, predicting who will win based only by looking at the cover of the book. After two rounds there were two students who had perfect brackets and only one student ended the contest with a perfect bracket. This years winning book was, One Handed Catch by MJ Auch.
This year a travel bug will be created for each book and will be placed in the caches that the kids created last year. To learn more about geocaching and travel bugs go to www.geocaching.com
