Northern Illinois University and DeKalb County will again host the 2021 Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Football State Championships November 26 – 27 at NIU’s Huskie Stadium in DeKalb.
Event volunteers have been instrumental to the success of State Championship Weekend, and the IHSA Destination DeKalb host committee is seeking assistance from the local communities, schools, groups and organizations to welcome thousands of visitors to the NIU campus and DeKalb County in November.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and cannot be a current high school student. Volunteer positions include ticket scanners, ushers, parking personnel and event staff for at least one of the three available shifts:
- 8 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
- Noon – 4 p.m.
- 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Individuals and groups that are interested in contributing to a great event that highlights NIU and the local community to students, families and visitors from across the state can register to volunteer at ihsadestinationdekalb.com/volunteer/
In collaboration with the IHSA, The IHSA Destination DeKalb Host Committee is providing an opportunity for monetary compensation to partner school and community organizations and groups that can secure at least ten (10) or more volunteers for one and/or both days of championship weekend.
Individuals certified in cash handling and interested in selling tickets or assisting with collection of parking fees may contact Marqia George directly at 708-870-2372 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
