Scholastic Bowl coaches from around Illinois voted Homewood-Flossmoor High School junior Michael Gislason to the All-State competitors team.

Of 48 top students nominated, only 20 are named to the all-state team at the Illinois High School Association’s Scholastic Bowl tournament. The top 10 were named to the first-team all-state, and those ranked 11-20, as Gislason was, were named to the second-team all-state at the annual competition March 20-21 in Peoria.
