Students from Kennewick and Richland elementary schools will compete in the Three Rivers Battle of the Books Championship.
Teams of fourth- and fifth-graders have been reading the Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award nominees in preparation for this event.
At the competition, children will be tested on their comprehension skills. They will answer questions about setting, character, genre, plot and other aspects of the books.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 23 in the Kennewick High School auditorium, 600 N. Arthur, Kennewick.
