Fine Arts Judges 2020-2021

The MSHSL continues to use guidelines and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Education to provide activities for students in the safest formats possible.  Fine arts sub-section and section competitions will look different in 2020-2021 with virtual formats.  

Registering judges for these events and providing a list of registered judges is important for member schools and section tournament personnel.  The permanent Judges Registration portal is still under development.

Below is information for Fine Arts Judges (Debate, Music, One Act Play, Speech, Visual Arts) for 2020-2021. 

For this year only there will be no registration fee.
