NIL deals for Wisconsin high schoolers denied, WIAA votes

MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) on Wednesday denied a constitutional amendment that would have allowed student-athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness.

Known as NIL, it's a new concept for collegiate athletes across the country. It has trickled down to the high school level in most states, where high school student-athletes are able to make NIL money.

In Wisconsin, the proposal was shot down 219-170 during Wednesday's WIAA meeting.
