The Troy Middle School Media Centers are launching Troybery Madness 2017! We are doing something new for our Troybery reading program, now in our 17th year.
We have a field of 32 potential Troybery books—students will help us narrow down to the top ten through voting each week during March is Reading month. Books will be in competition just like the NCAA March Madness tournament, except that we will stop at the Elite 8 and do a vote for 2 wildcard spots to make it ten total. In order to vote, students will need to read at least 3 books out of the 32.
Students have until Feb. 28 to fill in their brackets, so now is the time to really start reading!!! On the Media Center Schoology Group in the Discussion section, there is a place to submit the completed bracket. Even if students have not read all 32 books, they can still try to guess which books are going to win!
We will be giving gift certificates to our next Scholastic Book Fair to students who have a perfect bracket! We will also give prizes to CLASSES who have perfect brackets.
Our ultimate goal is to get kids excited about and interested in reading. The voting starts March 1, so make sure your child has read at least 3 from this list in order to participate!
Once we have narrowed it down to the top ten by March 14, students will have time to read those titles in order to vote for the final Troybery winner on April 19-20. The Troybery Award winner will be announced on April 28, 2017, at our annual ceremony.
