Hubenak Elementary bested the rest in Lamar CISD’s annual Battle of the Bluebonnet Books. Each elementary forms a team and is tested on the ability to recognize passages and answer questions chosen from this year's Bluebonnet Books. 

Hubenak was represented at this year’s contest by Caleb Helmke, Jennifer Jew, Roman Ortega, Jordan Tosch, Bach Tran and Valeria Vazquez. Librarian Sarah Falcon coached the team.

Each year, the Texas Library Association announces its Bluebonnet Book Award list. Titles are chosen for both quality and appeal to children.

Campbell took second in the annual competition, with Williams and Huggins tying for third after two 25-question rounds and a 20-question tie-breaker.

The competition is completely underwritten by the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation, which paid for t-shirts, trophies, lunch for the participants and travel costs for all 24 elementary schools.
