Volunteers needed for IHSA State Football Championships

November 7, 2019

Northern Illinois University and DeKalb County will again host the 2019 Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Football State Championships at Huskie Stadium, November 29 – 30.

Volunteers serve a big role in the continued success of the event, and the IHSA Destination DeKalb team is seeking assistance from the university and local communities to welcome close to 30,000 visitors to campus during state championships weekend.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and cannot be a current high school student.  Volunteer positions include ticket scanners, ushers and parking personnel for at least one of the three available shifts:

  • 8 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • Noon – 4 p.m.
  • 4:0 p.m. – 8:00 p m. 

Faculty, staff and students who 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

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 are able to 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 Julie Ream directly at 815-752-6812 or email [email protected].
