Announcing the triumphant return of Battledecks to the California Library and School Library Conference!
This fun and exciting program will challenge some of the best Library Presenters in California to show their skill and test their mettle!
Presenters will battle it out to give the best improvisational presentation based upon a set of 10 often humorous, unrelated, and hand-created slides that they are seeing for the first time live on stage. The presenters will face tough judgment and scrutiny from an unbiased and inscrutable team of judges. The best presenter will be determined based upon a variety of criteria but most importantly on their overall level of AWESOME! The most awesome presenter will walk away with the pride and honor of being crowned CLA/CSLA Battledecks champion of 2011.
Awesomeness, entertainment, and hilarity, along with a healthy dose of learning, is guaranteed for all!
