District Wide YETI Books Competition Information

You’ll Enjoy These Incredible Books!


There have been several changes made to the 2017-2018 district competition.  The first change is the name.  We are now calling it the YETI Books Competition because we are selecting the books used in the competition from several different Washington Children’s Choice lists.  This allows us to select books from a variety of genres and reading levels. The second change is the number of books.  The Bellingham School District Teacher Librarian team has selected 13 “YETI” books that will be used for both the 4th and 5th grade competitions.

Dates:  This year, the District Competition will be held at Wade King Elementary at 1:30.

5th grade teams will compete on February 22nd, and 4th grade will compete on March 1st.


Silver Beach School school competitions will held on February 14th & 20th.  

Parents are welcome to attend, but I will warn you….for 4th grade it will be standing room only.  Which is not a bad problem to have!

4th Grade will compete on Tuesday, February 20th from 12:45-1:45 in the Lower Commons.

5th Grade will compete on Wednesday February 14th from 9-10 am in the Library


The YETI Books competitions will each consist of 3 rounds. The first two rounds will each have questions about the books, the answer to the question will be the name of a book. The top scoring teams from these rounds will advance to the finals. The final round will consist of quotes from the books. Teams will have to correctly identify which book the quote came from. In the event of a tie, the tying teams will continue into a sudden death round.


Practice Quizzes can be found under the Library Tab on the school website.  YETI Practice Quizzes 2017-18
