GHSA Starting 'Officials Appreciation Week' Program

In recognition of the contribution the GHSA contest officials make to our member schools and student athletes, the GHSA is starting a new program called "Officials Appreciation Week."  There will be a week in each GHSA sports season (fall, winter, spring) in which we request that schools hosting events during these designated weeks recognize the contest officials in some special manner (cookies, treats, thank you notes, etc.) to show your appreciation for their service. Listed below are the designated weeks for the current school year:

FALL - September 19 - 24 (Football, FP Softball, Cross Country, Volleyball, Cheer, One-Act Play)

WINTER - January 23 - 28 (Basketball, Wrestling, Swimming, Esports, Bass Fishing, Dance, Literary)

SPRING - April 17 - 22 (Baseball, Soccer, Lacrosse, SP Softball, Track & Field, Gymnastics)


Thanks, and remember "Without officials, it would just be recess."
