The Nebraska Schools Activities Association announced earlier this month a partnership with the Nebraska State College System. The partnership will incorporate all NSAA activities with an emphasis on the Nebraska State Colleges Multi-Activity Student Award. NSAA Executive Director Jay Bellar stated “We are excited to begin this relationship with the Nebraska State College System. This partnership aligns with our vision of associating with Nebraska-based organizations that value our educational mission and commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles for Nebraska participants.” The Nebraska State College System encompasses the three state colleges comprised of Chadron State, Peru State, and Wayne State. Chancellor Paul Turman of the Nebraska State College System said that the “State Colleges are excited to partner with NSAA to create the Nebraska State Colleges Multi-Activity Awards.” The award recognizes students in grades 9-12 who participate in at least three NSAA sanctioned activities during the academic year and is based solely on each member school’s eligibility list submitted through the NSAA website. Each high school student who meets the NSAA eligibility criteria will be recognized and awarded a certificate of achievement by the NSAA and the Nebraska State Colleges.
