The booklists are available on the WEMTA website along with the timeline, rules, and FAQs. The battle committee supplies practice questions, online practice, and the final competition is conducted online also.

Early bird deadline is November 15, 2015.  Registration will only be accepted through December 15, 2015. Early bird fees are $15 through November 15, 2015.  November 16 through December 15, 2015, fees will be $30.

Please contact the WEMTA office at or (608) 848-1232 to update your record with your new district and email or for a new password.

In addition, it provided a starting point for a wonderful conversation with my principal about what the library does and where the program should be going."
