How do I make a team submission? 

To nominate a team for the WIAA Academic Awards and to order certificates log in to
MyWIAA. All submissions will be recognized HERE.

How is the team average GPA calculated?
It is the sum of the GPA's (based on a 4.0 scale) of all varsity members of the team/group, divided by the number of members.  It must include all members of the group, including 9th graders and students who participated in an activity at the varsity level.  

Examples:
 

Name - GPA
Aaliyah - 3.490
Manuel - 3.950
Kristina - 3.254
Michael - 3.562
TOTAL: 3.564

Information Submitted:
GPA (rounded to three places) - 3.564 
Number of Participants - 4
Name - GPA
Ingrid - 3.591
Jaden - 3.580
Nicole - 3.306
Shawn - 3.727 
TOTAL: 3.551

Information Submitted:
GPA (rounded to three places) - 3.551
Number of Participants - 4  
    
What GPA's do I use to calculate the average? 
GPA's are based upon the grade from the previous marking period that is logged on a student's transcript for credit purposes.  Typically, that means the previous semester or trimester.  Quarter grades are not to be used unless the student receives full credit for a class after completion of a quarter.  Students who do not have a previous grade due to running start, home-schooling, study abroad or incoming as foreign students are not utilized in the calculations 
 
 


The Freshmen don't have a high school GPA established in mid-October.  Do I just leave them out? 
NO, all members of the team must have their GPA's counted...including Freshmen.  They will need their last GPA score, from eighth grade, to be used in the total.

What is the deadline date for submitting an application?
Applications for Distinguished and Outstanding Team Awards may be received at any time during the school year.  There will be no Academic State Champion recognized in the 2020-21 school year because of varying league schedules.

How do I order certificates? 
To enter a submission and to order certificates log in to wiaa.com/mywiaa.

What do our students get for the distinction of high team GPA? 
Schools will receive a certificate indicating the team's accomplishment, at no charge. Insignias for each participating member (for letter jackets, etc.) are available for $1.00 each.  Participant certificates are also available for 50 cents each.  These items may be ordered on the same form as the application, included on the online application.  Please note, Athletic Directors at each school have the authority to make orders.
