History

DID YOU KNOW -- When members of the Washington and Jefferson Literary Societies at the University of Virginia decided in the fall of 1913 to organize a debating league among the secondary schools of the state, they could not have conceived how their small project would develop, expand and grow into what is now the Virginia High School League. By the fall of 1914, 100 schools were enrolled in the Virginia High School Literary League. Its program was expanded during 1914-15 to include a contest in oral reading, and statewide competition in baseball, basketball and track soon followed. Each activity was governed by a set of standard rules developed by the League which was renamed "The Virginia High School Literary and Athletic League."
