in America's history. Certainly, United States Achievement Academy winners

States Achievement Academy.

teachers, coaches, counselors, and other qualified sponsors and upon the
Standards of Selection set forth by the Academy. The criteria for selection
are a student's academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership
qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve,
citizenship, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability and recommendation
from a teacher or director.
