(Des Moines, IA) — Iowa high school athletes are now eligible to make money from the use of their name, image, and likeness. The change comes after the Iowa High School Athletic Association announced an update to its handbook policy, now allowing Iowa boys and girls to profit off of their identity. The association notes that the compensation cannot be dependent on athletic performance or achievement. The high schoolers’ deal cannot force an athlete to stay enrolled at a particular school. Additionally, the compensation can’t be provided by a school or a school’s booster club.
