UIL General Information


2023 UIL Region 1-AA Spring Meet – April 21-22, 2023

Greetings regional competitors and coaches,

WTAMU is excited to welcome you to our campus. Here are some tips to help you with your day.

  1. The Academic Portion will be on the WTAMU Campus on Friday, April 21.
  2. The One Act Play Competition will be on Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22 at the Randall High School Auditorium.
  3. The information center is in the Jack B. Kelley Student Center (JBK), on the lower level in the West Texas Room (33). Awards can be picked up from there. Verification will also be in the same building. Academic verification will occur in either the West Texas Room and/or the Maroon Room (37). Speech verification will take place in CC 427.
  4. Tests will be mailed due to regional contests still taking place the next day across the state. No need for a self-addressed stamped envelope this year, you will have a school envelope in each contest room. Please fill out the envelope in that room for where you would like your tests mailed.
  5. All students finishing 1st place in any individual test/speech contest will receive a $1,000.00 scholarship to the University. This will be good for the fall of 2023. Please stop by West Texas (33) and give us your information.
  6. Journalism events and Ready Writing will be located in the Hastings Electronic Learning Center (HELC). Room 9. Students are not required to bring computers or printers they are provided.
  7. Speech events will be headquartered in the Classroom Center (CC) 427. Postings will be on the 4th floor.
  8. Box lunches are available for coaches and judges in the JBK White (38).
  9. Tests may be viewed in West Texas (33) as soon as they have been graded.
  10. Bus parking is at the First United Bank Center parking lot. Students and sponsors can ride the shuttle. Suburbans and vans can park in Zones 12 and 5 as parking enforcement will be suspended for our event in those locations only.
  11. Coaches will need to help score the objective items. Proctors will make announcements for when and where grading will take place. This will depend on the contest.
  12. The JBK Food Court has a variety of options, but operates cashless. Individuals that do not have debit cards can use cash to load a Gold Card from the Gold Card cash box located in the JBK Food Court area or they can use cash to purchase a pre-loaded $10 Gold Card from the University Bookstore (with the ability to add more to the balance from the machine).
  13. We will use the Remind App to send out announcements (specifically to announce Verification times). The class name is 2A Region 1 UIL. You can join here:
