Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl
The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is an active activity of the GLMA and has been since the beginning of the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl in 2004. The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a subcommittee of the Special Projects Area of GLMA according to the GLMA Policies and Procedures Handbook. The Steering Committee is made up of GLMA members of which several are current District Chairs in GLMA.
Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a project that gives a face to GLMA that the teachers, administrators and parents of Georgia use to define the good that GLMA does for the students of our state. Library media has long fought a battle against an antiquated image. The HRRB is a local activity as well as a state-wide activity that helps people see library media as involved in curriculum and the support of reading among our students.
How the HRRB has changed the image of library media in local schools and how it is benefiting student achievement?
We would like to reference your comments in our comments to the GLMA Board in the October meeting and in our presentation at AASL in Charleston.
