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 winners and runners up, their G.P.A., numbers of students averaged, and total enrollments are:

Class AA

Bozeman - 3.610 - 309 2,271

Glacier - 3.522 - 253 - 1,230        

Class A

Whitefish - 3.714 - 202 - 581

Beaverhead County - 3.514 - 161 - 320

Class B

Bigfork - 3.262 - 135 - 320

Cut Bank - 3.165 - 79 - 210

Class C

The prestigious awards, sponsored by NorthWestern Energy, will be presented during the 2020-2021 school year to the four academic champions.
