Las Cruces State Battle


Welcome to the Battle of the Books State Competition (Las Cruces) Page!

The Battle is upon us!  The Las Cruces Planning Committee is so excited to be hosting one of this year’s Battles.  We hope for this to be an amazing event where we all experience the comradery of these young New Mexico readers; whose common bond is the love of books.

In order to share this love of books, we are wanting to implement a philanthropical component to this year’s Battle of the Books Competition.  We respectfully request that each team donate at least one book (any age range or type).  These books will be given to some needy Las Cruces children and organizations (e.g., Jardin de los Ninos, La Casa) to ensure they have access to books to grow their love of reading.  We thank you in advance for this amazing gift!

Below you will find information regarding the Las Cruces Battle of the Books Competition.  If you have questions that are not answered on this page please contact us at  We can’t wait to see you!
