The UIL One-Act Play contest is a competition where similarly sized Texas schools present an 18-40 minute play usually adjudicated by a single judge or a panel of judges.  The contest is held on a single day and open to the public. Levels of competition include: District, Area, Region, and State.  At each level of competition the judge awards individual acting awards as well as selecting two productions to advance to the next level of competition.  After the awards are announced the Judge gives an oral critique to each of the schools.  Because of the wide participation and diversity of plays produced certain rules and guidelines have been adopted by the State OAP Office.  These rules are in place to ensure safety, allow for equity, satisfy legal standards, and make the running of the contest practical.
