Approximately two weeks after all regional competitions are complete, an official list of those schools and individuals who qualify will be emailed to coaches and posted above. While we do have a limited amount of space at the University of Illinois, the Contest Committee makes its best effort to maximize participation in the state finals. A description of the automatic state qualifiers is listed below:
