153 Students comprising 57 teams from 13 schools competed in the DVEF  Battle of the Books this year!  The Final Battle between the highest scoring team from each school took place in the District Office in May.  Teams and Media Center Specialist came by buses to the District Office to compete.  It was quite a lively  competition and celebration!
