Gopher State Officials Inaugural Recognition Event


Gopher State Officials has been serving high schools in Minnesota for more than 60 years, over time becoming the largest officiating association in Minnesota. Some of our officials have been working for Gopher for almost that long, and many for more than half that time. The Gopher State Board of Directors is hosting an event to honor those who have contributed to Gopher State's success and longevity, and also to recognize members of the next generation of officials who will take us the next 60 years and beyond.

There will be door prizes from the event's sponsors, along with awards such as the Bozo Wincek Award, 

Rookie of the Year, and recognition of our retired officials.
