Project Literacy


The San Diego Council on literacy found 560,000 adults in the county read at an elementary school level, or not at all. 10News and the Scripps Howard Foundation is committed to changing that. But we are not alone in that effort.

Below are stories and resources to help raise awareness of Project Literacy.

America's Battle of the Books
America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together, usually in groups, to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions. However, the structure, format, and rules of the competitions may vary depending on the educational goals, student needs, local resources, and personal preferences at various school sites, school districts, county libraries, or offices of education.
