In Response To: Southern States and GA State Meet. (Jeff Robison)
I don't know what Georgia UIL rules state about student athletes accepting money in a contest but this is what Texas rules state. I would hate for any High School Student to lose eligibility because someone might not be aware of the rules. I hope this is a successful meet but please check the rules to protect the student athletes.
12. Have observed all provisions of the Athletic Amateur Rule. Students may not accept money or other valuable consideration (items which are wearable, salable or usable) for participating in any athletic sport during any part of the year. Athletes shall not allow their names to be used for the promotion of any product, plan or service. Students who inadvertently violate the amateur rule by accepting valuable consideration may regain athletic eligibility by returning the valuable consideration. If individuals return the valuable consideration within 30 days after they are informed of the rule violation, they regain their athletic eligibility when they return it. If they fail to return it within 30 days, they remain ineligible for one year from when they accepted it. During the period of time from when students receive valuable consideration until they return it, they are ineligible for all varsity athletic competition. Minimum penalty for participating in a contest while ineligible is forfeiture of the contest.
