This is the 5th year for DVEF Battle of the Books. In Year one, we had 8 schools participating with about 160 students. Now, in year 5, we have 27 schools participating with a total of 239 teams with over 700 students!! So you can see this is a very successful program that our kids LOVE!

Thanks to this program, and the participation of these students, the Deer Valley Education Foundation has donated a total of about 24,000 books to our school libraries!!

Thanks to our sponsors who help make this program available to our students:


~ Grad’s Photography – Brad Kramer, owner

AND DVEF Year - Long Sponsors:

~ Discover Financial and McCarthy Building Company

I’d also like to thank the media center specialists and teachers at each school who make this possible at your child’s school.
