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. Schools may enter as many teams as they like and there is no registration fee. Children must apply through their school. See below for the list of books for the 2023 Interscholastic Reading Competition.
The winners of the 2022 Interscholastic Reading Competition were the Lafayette Middle School team, The Reading Explorers
