The Official Wisonsin State yo-yo contest is the sanctioned contest of Wisconsin. It is held every January in conjunction with Mad-Fest Juggling Festival in Madison and it is run by Anthony Jerving.
A controversy arose in 2004 Anthony Jerving started a yo-yo contest at madfest using the National Yo-Yo League rules for seeding to a regional contest. That contest would technically be the "state" contest. However Judith Schultzs had been calling her contest the state contest for a lot longer and objected to the idea of having to change the name of her contest. So Judith wanted the state title for her contest and Anthony wanted the NYYL seed to Mid-West Regionals so they agreed on calling the contest Judith ran the "Original Wisconsin States" and the contest Anthony ran the "Official Wisconsin States". And that is how it continues today.
