What is Ultimate Book Challenge? The Ultimate Book Challenge (UBC) is a reading competition designed to improve reading and comprehension while also building enthusiasm for reading.  Students will compete individually and in teams to show their knowledge of 10 pre-selected books.  This year, the battle books are all current or past Bluebonnet nominees. Who Can Compete? Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade are eligible for the competition. When Does It Start? Students will be given an introduction to the competition during the month of September. If they decide to compete, they will need to read the eight selected books and be prepared to attend weekly practices to prepare for competition. When Is The School-Wide Challenge? In December, the student UBC teams at Love will compete against each other to determine our Love Champion UBC Team. When Is The District Battle?

In the spring semester, the winning team from Clara Love will go on to compete in the district competition.
