The NSAA Cup recognizes high schools having the most successful interscholastic activities
programs in the state for that year. The divisions of competition include a Girls Division, a Boys
Division and an All-School Division. Schools in each division are divided into four classes, (A,
B, C, and D) determined each activities year, based on enrollment.
Three simultaneous contests take place during the year. The Girls Division and Boys
Division competitions, in each class, will feature schools earning points from their respective
athletic activities and in the case of coed schools, sharing the fine arts activities’ points equally.
The All-School Division contest will include all activities in which each high school participates.
The NSAA Cup awards program began in the fall of 2006. The winners of The NSAA Cup are determined by a point system based on performance in state championship events within each division and class. Music, which does not have a state championship, will earn points based on district music contest participation.
