Subject: [Libs-Or] Battle of the Books 2013 registration by Nov 15

The registration deadline for schools wishing to participate in Oregon Battle of the Books this year is November 15th. To compete in the regional/state OBOB tournaments in spring, 2013 schools must complete an online registration form and postmark payments by November 15th.

Please check with library colleagues and administrators in your area to make sure no one has overlooked the looming deadline. There is a spreadsheet of currently registered participants posted on the front page of the OBOB wiki <http://oboblsta.pbworks.com><http://oboblsta.pbworks.com>  Schools without professional library staffing may not be aware of the registration deadline so your assistance could be especially valuable.

All registration information can be found on the wiki along with 2012-2013 title lists for grade level divisions 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12, a handbook of rules & procedures, and other related resources.

Close to 400 Oregon schools participated in OBOB last year and new schools are welcome to sign up. This successful reading motivation program promotes teamwork and academic excellence and continues to increase in popularity with students, teachers, principals, and parents. Growth in reading comprehension and encouragement of a love of reading are among the benefits observed by participating schools. If schools in your area have not established a battle of the books program, we encourage you to talk to librarians, teachers, administrators, and parent groups about joining OBOB before the November 15th deadline.
