NCSLMA began sponsoring HSBOB in 2017-18.  District level competitions will be held each spring with regional competitions following them.  We are looking for volunteers to organize regional competitions.  If you are interested please email the HBOB chair at hbobchair@ncslma.org.


The School-Level BOB Compliance form must be completed and submitted by each school participating in any level of BOB competition each year.  The school media coordinator must join or renew NCSLMA membership BEFORE submitting the online form.  

The compliance form is now found under your profile.  Click on your name after you have logged in, then click "edit profile".  You can update your personal information, your school information and the compliance form.  Click here for a video of the steps.  Deadline is December. 

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

For questions or to join the committee, contact the HBOB Chair at hbobchair@ncslma.org.
