Reading Bowl 1819

History of the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl

Several years ago, Mrs. Helen Ruffin, a library media specialist in DeKalb County, wanted to find a way to use the nominee books from the Georgia Children’s Book Awards to encourage her students to read. She therefore created a unique reading competition in game format, called the Reading Bowl, using the award nominees. Her vision was to have teams comprised of students from different schools compete to test their knowledge of the selected books.

Today, the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is open to students in grades four through twelve across the state.

Something that will stretch their imaginations--something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own."

Swint is one of the 1,037 Georgia schools that beat the odds in 2016, performing better than statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).  The Beating the Odds analysis predicts a range within which a school’s CCRPI score is statistically expected to fall; given the school’s size, grade cluster, student mobility, and student demographics (including race/ethnicity, disability, English learners, and poverty).  If an individual school’s actual CCRPI is above the predicted range, then that school beat the odds.
