2020 - 2021 Mid-America Region Scholars
POP WARNER ALL-AMERICAN SCHOLAR PROGRAM:
Each year, the most academically accomplished Pop Warner kids compete for Academic All-American status. This process begins at the association level and up through each of the eight Pop Warner regions to the national level. The PWLS All-American Program requires a minimum 96% grade point average to apply for All-American status. After the applications have been processed, Pop Warner determines National First Team All-Americans (35 football, 35 cheer per grade), National Second Team All-Americans and National Honorable Mention Scholars.
POP WARNER AND SCHOLASTICS
Pop Warner is the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play. We believe that our commitment to maintaining academic standards as participation requirement allows are youth a chance to develop a sense of responsibility, as well as an understanding of the importance of academics and athletics that will help them develop later on in life. Pop Warner Little Scholars (PWLS) is dedicated to helping build well-rounded youth who will grow into well-rounded citizens of their communities.
