The Minnesota State High School All-Academic Robotics Team program recognizes the academic excellence (based on GPA) of high school students who participate in the Minnesota State High School League robotics programs.
Students are nominated by coaches who are members of the MRCA. To earn all-academic state honors, a student must possess a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or higher (based on a 4.0 scale) for this current year. This honor is open to students in grade levels 10-12.
In addition to the GPA requirement, a student must be an “important contributor to the team” and have no MSHSL violations in the current or previous year. Students are able to receive this award on an annual basis if so nominated.
The conference consists of 31 teams, 28 of which are based in Minnesota and are eligible for this award.
