All-USA Academic Team Applicant Guide
The All-USA Academic Team seeks to honor outstanding students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to hold up as representatives of all outstanding two-year college students. Because each school is limited to nominating two students per campus, the work students put into their application will determine how competitive they will be in the national competition. Weaving their story in a coherent fashion is critical in letting nominators and our judges know who the student is, what they are doing, and why they feel qualified to receive this recognition.
Nominees to the All‐USA Academic Team may also be considered for the Coca‐Cola Academic Team, New Century Scholars programs, and All‐State Academic Teams where applicable.
