The All-Washington Academic Team program recognizes and honors our state’s finest higher education students.

Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society for two-year colleges, initiated an All-USA Academic Team to recognize two-year college students for scholastic achievement and community and college service. In 1994, state-level academic teams were introduced. Students nominated to the All-USA Academic Team are automatically named to their state team. The All-Washington team was launched in 1996.
