West University Elementary students Emeka Ndefo, Thomas Larsson, Juliana Taylor, Alexander Kim, Sam Atha, Gregory Zachariah, and Ryan Atha tied for first place, with students from The Arabic Immersion School, at the annual HISD Library Services’ Name that Book competition; and Horn Elementary students Elliot Miller, Palmer Sheldon, Shaunak Goel, Rebekah Mummert, Libby Gottlieb, Nathan Davis, and Aria Modi tied for second place, with Lovett Elementary, at the competition. The teams of third through fifth graders joined other avid readers from across the district who read books from a list of contemporary award winners to prepare for the event, and then competed in teams to identify quotes from books across several genres. Name that Book is designed to celebrate and encourage the love of reading through competition in three age categories: kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grade, and sixth through eighth grade.
