Congratulations to ALL State Qualifiers!
VERY IMPORTANT: MEMO FROM STATE CONTEST DIRECTOR for Accounting
On the UIL website home page: Academics/Meets/State Meet/ then scroll down...please locate MEMOS FROM STATE CONTEST DIRECTORS and select the Accounting pdf. This document will give you the state meet policies and procedures along with MANY details about what to expect at state meet for UIL Accounting. It WILL answer many of your questions. Every contestant and coach should read this document carefully prior to State Meet, and have it available in Austin for reference. Please be informed and prepared about all the procedures in order to avoid any adverse consequences. Coaches of ALL contestants, please Email the State Director by Monday, April 22 using the Email template located in this Memo.
All adult volunteer positions will be filled using Email prior to our trip to Austin. The state director will also Email various instructions using PDFs. Coaches, please email the state director with any questions you have about procedures. The time allowed for questions prior to the start of the testing hour is very limited as we MUST stay on schedule for those contestants competing in more than one UIL event.
MAJOR CHANGES At State Meet This Year:
There is NO coaches meeting on Friday.
A coach or other adult should accompany contestants for the 7:30 a.m. Check In.
At the Check In, each SCHOOL will receive a manila envelope containing the Contestant(s) "PINK CARD(s)" (contestant ID #) and various other items. The contestant may only take the Pink Card into the testing room; NOT the manila envelope.
Coaches, if your school needs to make a team substitution or if one of your school's state individual qualifiers cannot attend state meet, PLEASE contact the UIL Academic office in Austin as soon as possible. The state office needs to make the changes to the online scoring system so that the state roster will be correct. Please handle this BEFORE coming to Austin if it is possible. A team substitution will require the proper documentation from your school's administration to prove a student's eligibility for UIL participation. Please also email me with any approved team substitutions as soon as possible.
Check Websites Frequently to Stay Informed
On the UIL Academic website, you will also find the Tentative Schedule which will give you dates, times, buildings, and room assignments. We will have the contest AND the grading in San Jacinto Hall. However, Verification and the Awards Ceremony will be in the University Teaching Center.
Watch carefully the UIL Academic website AND this UIL Accounting website to stay current regarding State Meet 2019.
We will have fun at state meet! We are all about to meet some of the most talented young accountants in the state of Texas! I can't wait!
As always, please contact me by email if after using the Accounting Memo, Accounting Handbook, and the two websites you are unable to find the answers to your questions.
