EBOB support is growing and the committee thanks everyone for their support.

 

Eligibility Guidelines for Participation

All guidelines must be met to participate in our Elementary Battle of the Books program. The participants must be:

  1. A public (including charter) or independent school recognized by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction with students in grades 4-6, where the elementary school is K-6 for the current year of participation.  Note: For K-8 or 6th grade only schools, students must follow guidelines for EBOB grades 4-5 and BOB grades 6-8.

    1. Charter schools will be treated as a separate school district* within their NCSLMA EBOB regions (See Appendix K).  All participating charter schools within each Region (1 - 8) will compete to determine the charter school representative at their appropriate regional competition.

    2. Independent schools will compete in Region 9.
