For more than 25 years the Utah High School Activities Association has presented the Academic All-State Award to recognize those students who have excelled in the classroom as well as in athletic competition. Individuals are selected for this award on the basis of their athletic ability and academic proficiency. With more than 85,000 students participating in high school activities, this award is the most prestigious honor the UHSAA presents to senior students.
