The South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) Academic Achievement Team Award program recognizes varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence. SDHSAA believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways – inside the classroom and outside the classroom on the stage and/or athletic field. This program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. It is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates.

All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to receive the award.

Teams from Elk Point-Jefferson to be honored are:

• Boys Basketball Team

• Boys Track & Field Team

• Girls Basketball Team

• Girls Golf Team

• Girls Track & Field Team

• One-Act Play

• Wrestling Team
