All-Louisiana Academic Team
The “All State Team” is a program that was started by Phi Theta Kappa, the American Association of Community Colleges and USA Today. It serves as a way to recognize and showcase the high academic achievement of students attending two-year colleges.
On an annual basis, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System hosts the All- Louisiana State Team to recognize academic excellence across the System. Independent judges review each application and select the team members. Students are recognized by the awarding of medallions and certificates.
