Buckeye Battledecks!

Don’t miss the hilarious Battledecks competition on Wednesday night from 9-11 p.m. in the Delaware Room at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus.

Come enjoy the thrill of victory and the hilarity of defeat! Buckeye Battledecks is back for the (almost-annual) 10th anniversary of the event. For the uninitiated, Battledecks is a test of nerves and the ultimate challenge for a public speaker (or someone who just likes to talk). Contestants will be asked to present on a plausible library Convention topic without ever previously seeing the presentation slides. But be prepared, these are not your typical stock image slides.

For the first time, Battledecks will feature real-time audience voting to help our ‘celebrity’ judges select the Battledecks Champion. Bring your smartphone to participate in voting.

Be a Contestant
The Local Arrangements Committee is seeking 10 contestants to join in the fun. If interested (or if you’d like to nominate someone from your library!), email olc@olc.org. We’ll be seeking contestants until all 10 spots are filled.

Buckeye Battledecks will be live and in-person on Wednesday, October 13 at 9 p.m. Who will be crowned the 2021 Buckeye Battledecks Champion?
