Academic Excellence Awards. One academic champion was crowned in each of the four athletic
classifications – AA, A, B and C.
Billings Skyview, Billings Central, Huntley Project and Whitewater High Schools were named champions
in their respective classifications.
The program was initiated in the school year 1988-89. Winners are determined by averaging the grades
earned by students who took part in athletic, music and/or speech/drama programs offered by that school
during the 2020-2021 school year. These participating students must have each met a specific criterion
to be in the averaging process.
