NPS Recognized as Class A School with the Most Multi-Activity Students

The Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) and the Nebraska State College System
(NSCS) recently announced the 15,918 recipients of the 2021-2022 Nebraska State Colleges
Multi-Activity Student Award.

The award recognizes students in grades 9-12 who participate in at least three NSAA
sanctioned activities during the academic year. Each high school student who participates in
at least three NSAA activities will be recognized and awarded a certificate of achievement by
the NSAA and the Nebraska State Colleges. Activity participation will be tracked using
student eligibility lists, submitted to the NSAA by each member school. The top schools in
four classes will be determined based on the percentage of multi-activity student award
winners compared to the total number of students in grades 9-12.

The NSAA and the NSCS also highlight the four high schools with the most multi-activity
students. The top four high schools will be presented with a banner at the NSAA State
Soccer Championships in May to display at their school. We are proud to say that Norfolk
Public Schools will be recognized as the top school in Class A for the 2021-2022 school year!

“As one of the smaller Class A schools, we know our programs depend on having
well-rounded students who participate in multiple sports and activities. It's wonderful to be
able to see the same students competing on the court, field, and stage. This award is a
testament to our students' dedication to their different activities, and their willingness to learn
and compete,” said Dr. Derek Ippensen Norfolk High School Principal.
