Members of the Hawthorne and Holley elementary school Oregon Battle of the Books teams answer questions during a practice run Thursday at Hawthorne Elementary School. The team members had to read 15 books to prepare for the contest. During the contest, they must answer detailed questions about the books. They will compete at a regional event Saturday in Woodburn. The winners move on to the state competition, which Holley attended last year. Christina Saveskie, who was asking the questions, listens as the Holley team, the group in front, answers. From left they are Olivia Saveski, Annabelle Morris, Eturnyti Allison and Keegan Gittins.
