UIL Academic Contests and COVID-19

UIL Academic Meet Directors, Coordinators, Coaches and Administrators,

As we continue to monitor the rapidly changing status of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and how it is impacting students and their activities we have the following updates regarding the remaining UIL academic events for the 2019-2020 school year. 

All UIL events scheduled March 16-29 are to be suspended. Rehearsals and practices during the time of suspension may be held with approval from the local school district. Beginning on March 30th events may resume with the considerations that follow. Any changes to these dates will be communicated as they become available.

District Academic and Speech

District Academic Meets, originally scheduled March 23-28, may now be held March 30-April 11. This includes speaking events. Entry deadlines may be adjusted as needed. We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in rescheduling district competitions.

One-Act Play

Note: Sunday competitions are allowed.

·       One-Act Play District/Bi-District certification deadline, originally scheduled March 26, has been extended to April 7.

·       One-Act Play Area certification deadline, originally scheduled for April 4, has been extended to April 14.

We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in rescheduling district and bi-district one-act play. Area one-act play will be scheduled based on host site availability and will be communicated via the UIL website.

Regional Academic, Speech and One-Act Play

Academic Regional Meets are still scheduled for April 17-18 and One-Act Play Regional dates remain April 15-18. Current sites are subject to change.

Robotics

Robotics FIRST Division FRC State scheduled April 2-4 has been postponed.

Again, any changes to these dates will be communicated as they become available.

Scheduling your district competitions remain at your local administration’s discretion. We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in rescheduling district competitions, as well as bi-district one-act play. Area one-act play will be scheduled based on host site availability.

Our office will work with meet directors and contest sites to reschedule as school districts allow. Meet directors should contact the UIL Academic Director David Stevens via email at dstevens@uiltexas.org to update the online entry system with the new date. If you have immediate concerns, do not hesitate to call (512) 965-2386.

We appreciate your cooperation and all that you do for UIL member schools.
