The Triple A Award recognizes students that excel in academics, arts and athletics. As a subsection winner, Grandall will compete with one other male student to represent Section 1AA at the state tournament in March.
Each year the Minnesota State High School recognizes individuals from each school who excel in academics, athletics and the arts. Each school nominates one male and one female student. The student's application is sent to a subsection committee where the committee chooses one male and one female to move on and compete at the section level against the other subsections.
The final level is at the state in conjunction with the boys state basketball tournament in March.
The top two award finishers from each section will be invited to a banquet during the tourney. League officials will announce the four Triple A Award recipients at the banquet. Award recipients - a girl and a boy from both a Class A and a Class AA school - will receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship.
