COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Teams from 39 Cobb County schools participated in this year's Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl on Jan. 19.

The bowl was started years ago by Helen Ruffin, a retired DeKalb County media specialist, as a way of encouraging children to read.

Participating teams prepared for the bowl by reading books nominated for the Georgia Book Awards; high school students read books up for the Georgia Teen Peach Book Award. The bowl is set up in a game show-style buzzer system, where players buzz in to answer questions.
