The winning grade will earn a biscuit party from Loveless Cafe's food truck. Winners will be determined by the grade with the highest level of challenge completions.

The competition consists of 10 challenges of 30-minute reading increments, to encourage each student to read for a total of 300 minutes by February 24.

The 2022 winner of Loveless's Books for Biscuits competition was the 7th-grade class at Dupont Tyler. They completed 15,300 minutes.
