SDHSAA academic awards


SOUTH DAKOTA — Initiated during the 1996-97 school year, the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Award program recognizes varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence.
The South Dakota High School Activities Association believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways; inside the classroom and outside the classroom — on the stage and/or athletic field.
This academic program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. This program is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates.
All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible for the award.
Following are a listing of Heartland-area fine arts academic groups recognized for the fall semester:
• De Smet: All-State Chorus and Oral Interpretation
• Huron: All-State Chorus and Oral Interpretation
• James Valley Christian: All-State Chorus and Oral Interpretation
• Miller: Oral Interpretation and All-State Chorus  
• Redfield: Oral Interpretation and All-State Chorus
• Wolsey-Wessington: Oral Interpretation and All-State Chorus
