The All A's Award is given to students who have taken a minimum of ten academic semester courses with no semester grade below 94%. The award for one year is a bronze medal. For two years of all A's, the award is a silver medal. For three years of all A's, the award is a gold medal. For four years of all A's, the award is a walnut plaque.
Also, each year the Nebraska School Activities Association and the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association recognizes students who have been nominated by their schools based on their individual academic excellence, leadership, and significant contributions made to their NSAA activity. A nominated student must be a varsity player or ogranizational leader and must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 93% or a 3.7 on a 4.0-point scale or the equivalent.
