From: Wilkes UniversityALL-USA COLLEGE ACADEMIC TEAM: USA TODAY seeks outstanding juniors and seniors for its 19th annual All-USA College Academic Team. The 20 students named to the First Team win trophies and $2,500 cash awards and are featured in USA TODAY in February as representatives of all outstanding undergraduates. Forty more students will be named to Second and Third Teams. They will be named in the paper and receive certificates. Criteria include academics, campus and community involvement and leadership, but the single biggest criterion is the student essay on his or her most outstanding intellectual endeavor as an undergraduate. Students must be nominated by their schools and register electronically to download the form, which is to be completed and mailed in by Nov. 30, 2007. The program is co-sponsored by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the American Council on Education.
