Teams take the top 10 grade point averages from their 19-man section team roster to submit on their application for the award. Teams that have a 3.0-3.49 team GPA receive a silver plaque, while teams with a 3.50-4.00 g.p.a. earn a gold plaque. This year 50 teams received the silver plaque and another 55 earned the gold plaque.
