The Montana High School Association has named the 2019-2020 winners of its NorthWestern Energy Academic Excellence Awards. One academic champion was crowned in each of the four athletic classifications - AA, A, B and C.
Bozeman, Whitefish, Bigfork and Plevna High Schools were named champions in each of 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 2019-2020 school year. These participating students must have each met a specific criterion to be in the averaging process.
The prestigious awards, sponsored by NorthWestern Energy, will be presented during the 2020-2021 school year to the four academic champions.
