North Duplin Jr./Sr. High School won Duplin County School’s annual Middle School Battle of the Books Competition last week.
B.F. Grady Elementary School placed second and Wallace Elementary School placed third.
All middle schools in the district were represented in the competition, which requires students to recall their knowledge of specific information from 27 books selected by the N.C. School Library Media Association.
North Duplin will go on to represent Duplin County on April 12 at the regional competition in Wayne County. Congratulations to all students, coaches and schools.
