NIC intramural sports officials t-shirt takes first place at conference

North Idaho College's Recreational Sports Department won first place in a recent professional development competition at the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association Conference for its design of officials' t-shirts.

The t-shirts, which are given to students who successfully complete a season as an intramural sports official, took first place in the t-shirt and apparel category against other recreational sports departments from both two-year and four-year colleges and universities. More than 2,000 people attended the April conference in Orlando, Fla., representing schools from across the nation.

Between 20 and 40 students officiate for the department each year, training as officials for a variety of sports and often going on to officiate part time for high school athletics.
