High School winners will be recognized on the evening of Wednesday, August 16th – alongside our professional and college student winners – during our Pinnacle Awards Banquet, part of our 83rd Annual Convention at the Embassy Suites in La Vista.  Winners will be guests of the NBA that evening and will be notified with further details. One “Gold” plaque will be presented to the winner in each category.
