About the Scholastic Stars project

Today we salute 44 of the region’s top high school seniors with the fourth annual presentation of the American News/Farm Forum Scholastic Stars.

The honorees were selected by school representatives on a formula of one senior standout per 100 students enrolled in the high school. The stars then filled out a questionnaire. Doland and Eureka declined to participate this year.

A six-judge panel selected the top 22 students for the Gold Team. The criteria included academics, extracurricular activities and clubs, awards and honors, community involvement and college and professional plans. The remaining students make up the Silver Team.

Congratulations to the 2020 Scholastic Stars, sponsored by Northern State University.
