Welcome to High School Battle of the Books!

NCSLMA is in the beginning stages of developing a Battle of the Book program for high schools.  Districts will be able to re

quest questions for district level competitions. There will not be any regional competitions this school year, but plans are being made for regional competitions in the future.

The System-Level HBOB Compliance Form must be completed and signed by each school participating in a district-level HBOB competition this year.  The school media coordinator must join or renew NCSLMA membership before submitting the online form.

We would like to have one coordinator and two representatives from each region, so please consider joining the committee.
