Passing along some information from our friends at the IHSA. The 2021-22 school year marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of Title IX. Among its many impacts, this landmark legislation has provided opportunities for young women to experience the benefits of interscholastic participation. To celebrate this anniversary, the IHSA is sponsoring a $50 for 50 years Title IX gift on “Giving Tuesday”, November 30, 2021. All proceeds from the 50 for 50 drive will be pledged to the IHSA Foundation, which annually provides scholarships to high school students selected to be a part of the All-State Academic Team. The IHSA All-State Academic Team is the IHSA's top academic honor. Team members must have a minimum 3.5 GPA, have participated in at least two IHSA sponsored sports/activities during each of the last two years, and demonstrate outstanding citizenship. Join in the progress of preserving our past and enhancing the future for students in Illinois. Please join the IHSA in recognizing 50 years of Title IX on Tuesday, November 30th! https://www.ihsastore.com/collections/frontpage/products/50-for-50 https://www.ihsa.org/IHSA-State/IHSA-State-Articles/ArtMID/2804/ArticleID/1862/preview/true
