Clayton State to Host the 2015 Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition, Feb. 7

Jan 23 2015

Clayton State University will be the site of the Seventh Annual Metro Atlanta Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition on Saturday, Feb. 7. 

The Clayton State University Library and 60 Clayton State volunteers drawn from faculty, staff and students will once again be hosting more than 500 people for the Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition, which will take place on the Clayton State campus from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Helen Ruffin was a library media specialist who wanted to excite kids about reading. In response to her posting on the selection committee for DeKalb County Georgia’s Children Book Award Nominee program, she decided to engage students throughout the county in a regional reading bowl.

To help with the Reading Bowl, Clayton State Dean of Libraries Dr. Gordon Baker has called for volunteers from the Clayton State campus to serve as readers, score keepers, and other general volunteers.
