The Fayette County Interscholastic Reading Competition is a Jeopardy-style team event for middle school students. It has been sponsored by the Friends of the Uniontown Public Library every year since 2002. Questions are based on 20 age-appropriate books, which the students read during the academic year. In May, teams from all participating schools meet in Uniontown to compete to be the champion.
The winners of the 2018 Interscholastic Reading Competition were the Laurel Highlands Mustangs.
