All-Washington Academic Team Ceremony

For complete information visit the All-Washington Academic Team website.

The Ceremony

The ceremony begins at noon on Thursday, March 26, 2015 in the South Puget Sound Community College Student Union Building.

Please make sure your student(s) know about the ceremony and, please try to confirm their presence so your president has someone to hang a medallion on.

It is entirely possible that some of your students may actually receive two medallions if they are named to the Coca-Cola All-State Team.

There will be a photo area and professional photographer, as usual.

How PIOs are Involved in the All-Washington Awards

The All-Washington Academic Team program recognizes and honors our state's finest higher education students. The program relies on the efforts of college communications, advancement, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) sponsors, and other campus leaders to stay on track.


See the All-Washington College Resources page for important details about photos, student bio requirements, deadlines and more.

Each college nominates two stellar students to represent Washington state on Phi Theta Kappa's national All-USA Academic Team, and those students, in turn, will represent your college on the state-level All-Washington Academic Team.

By mid-January — at the latest — PTK should send Kellie Purce Braseth, dean of college relations at South Puget Sound Community College, a list of the students who met the criteria for the team.

When she gets the list, she will send it to PIOs to check for accuracy. She uses the list and short bios and photos sent by PIOs to create the ceremony booklet.

Nominee bios and photos are due to Kellie by the end of the Friday, January 30, 2015. You may submit the bios at the SPSCC All-Washington website.


As you know, this is a great opportunity to connect with your legislators. Please be sure to invite them to the ceremony. We will not be offering a shuttle between the college campus and capital campus. It always seems to work best when you guys get your representatives to the event.
