This year’s Tracy Area High School Triple “A” nominees are Margaret Dolan and Matt Munson.
Triple “A” stands for Academics, Arts, and Athletics and honors high school seniors in Minnesota who have a 3.0 or higher-grade point average and who participate in League-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities.
To be eligible for the annual award, seniors must also comply with the Minnesota State High School League’s Student Code of Conduct and complete an application form.
Triple ‘A’ Award recipients are selected through a multi-level process involving member schools of the League, the League’s administrative regions, and a special committee of educators, business leaders and members from the fine arts and athletic communities.
Two award finishers from each region (one boy and one girl) will be invited to a recognition banquet in March, and League officials will announce the four statewide Triple ‘A’ Award winners at that time.
All 32 finalists will also participate in an on-court ceremony during the Class AA championship game of the Boys Basketball State Tournament. The statewide award winners — a girl and a boy from Class A and Class AA schools — will also receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship.
