    Individual Events:Judges are recommended by the State

    Tournament Committee and appointed by theIHSA. Input as to potential hired judges canbe made to the IHSA office.

    Once a list of prospective judges iscompiled, the committee meets anddetermines those individuals who are to becontacted as hired judges for the State Final.In addition, the committee prepares a list often to fifteen coaches for consideration ineach of the events to provide guidance to thesub-committee which will contact coachjudges upon completion of the Sectionalcontests.

    Contact is made by the IHSA and IHSArepresentatives to persons selected as hiredjudges. On Sunday and Monday, following thecompletion of the Sectional, the judgeassignment sub-committee contacts coaches

    by telephone to complete the roster of judgesfor the State Final. Coach judges serve toprovide multiple judges in each round ofcompetition.

    Tournament Committee and appointed by theIHSA Office. The Committee meets andprovides the IHSA with a prioritized list ofprospective judges.

    represent various philosophies and who didnot judge at the State Finals during thepreceding year. Judges for the State Finalscannot judge at the Sectionals in the sameevent.
