Illinois Scholastic Bowl News

All-Sectional voting is now open! To get started, visit the All-Sectional page to download your Sectional’s nomination packet and spreadsheet.

All-Sectional voting is extended until 11:59pm on Monday, February 20. All current Illinois high school coaches are eligible to vote; you do not have to be an IHSSBCA member to vote for All-Sectionals. You are encouraged to include your own players in your Sectional ranking.

All-Sectionals and All-State are the ultimate “All-Tournament” teams for each academic year, recognizing the most competitive and enthusiastic players in the state. The process begins with nominating your top players, and continues with All-Sectional voting and the closed All-State voting process after the All-Sectional teams have been chosen.

Read All-Sectional and All-State guidelines or visit the All-Sectional page for more information.

Grant applications are now open for the spring semester. The spring grant period closes on March 28. Visit the Grant information page to learn more.
