In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association announced Thursday that it will postpone the upcoming State Drama Festival and State Dance/Drill Championships until further notice.

The State Drama festival was scheduled for March 19-21 at Western Washington University, while the State Dance/Drill Championships were to be staged at the Yakima SunDome, March 27-28. This follows the announcement on March 7 that the WIAA State Individual Events Tournament and the State Debate Tournament would be postponed.

WIAA staff has been working diligently with the Washington State Department of Health over the past several weeks and has used the guidance of experts in the health community to determine the best course of action regarding state championship events. Following the address of Governor Inslee on Wednesday, and the closing of numerous school districts around the state, the decision to postpone these events was made to ensure the safety of WIAA student-participants and their families.

With the WIAA spring sports season officially beginning on March 2, any regular season contests or practices are held at the discretion of each member school and school district.

The Washington State Solo & Ensemble Contests (April 24-25) along with WIAA spring sports championships (May 23-30) are to remain as scheduled, however staff will continue to work with the Department of Health over the coming months to determine if any changes are necessary.
