Dear UIL Coordinator/Sponsors:

We are planning the Sixteenth Annual Sabine Pass UIL “Shark Meat.” The meet will be held on Saturday, January 14th at Sabine Pass School.

We would appreciate a simple yes R.S.V.P at your earliest convenience so we can get a working number of schools. We have a very competitive meet and are generally near the limit of students in each contest so early registration is advised.

TIME SCHEDULE: A Time Schedule of Events is posted. Please check this schedule carefully. The schedule has been determined by the UIL Conflict Pattern and by our facilities.

DEADLINES: Entry deadline is Tuesday, January 10, 2023.

FEES: Each school is limited to four (4) in all writing events (Journalism and Ready Writing) and Speech. The top scores from each school will be used to calculate team scores in team events. Entry fees will be $10.00 per event per tested student, $15 for writing events, and $30.00 per Speech entry. There are NO additional judging fees

DROPS: Drops after Wednesday, January 11th will forfeit the entry fee. Please advise us of any drops in Speech in advance if possible. 

SUBSTITUTIONS: Substitutions may be made on the day of the contest. It is the responsibility of the contestant to make the director of that specific contest aware of the substitution. If contestants are added, present the contest director with your add slip indicating that you have been added to the contest.

FOOD AND SERVICES: The Senior Class will be operating a concession with snacks, drinks, and full meals for all participants to purchase. Meals for the coaches and bus drivers will be provided in the hospitality room.

FACILITIES: Contests will be held in several buildings on our campus. The cafeteria will be available for students who have finished or are in between contests.

RESULTS AND AWARDS: Results and awards will be announced in the cafeteria as they become available. We will award medals to the top six places in individual events. Plaques for 1st place Team Events and first, second, and third place sweepstakes trophies for schools earning the most points will also be awarded.

JUDGING AND GRADING: Paid judges will be provided by Sabine Pass School for all judged events including Journalism

ATTENTION: All Computer Applications teams and Spelling teams MUST provide a grader. If one is not provided, that school’s papers will NOT be scored. In addition, all Computer Applications, Computer Science programming, and Journalism contestants that wish to type, must provide their own laptop computers, printers, etc.


Vandalism of any sort will result in disqualification of the entire squad.

Please keep all food and drinks in the cafeteria or concession area.
