2017-18 COMPETITION PROGRAM

The competition program for Saturday is ready!  We have one program for both the morning and afternoon sessions.  You can view and print the  HRRB Program 2018 here.


READ THE RULES

Everyone- coaches, participants, volunteers, parents- can read the rules.  The document created by the Dekalb County Schools Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl committee (the group that runs the competition throughout the state) was updated in 2015 and includes everything one needs to know about taking part in a competition at each level from local to state.  The Cobb County Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl competition will follow these rules to the letter.
