The All-Florida Academic TeamEach year, an All-Florida Academic Team is named to recognize outstanding students in the Florida College System. This distinction is bestowed upon these students in recognition of their academic achievement, leadership and service to the community.
The All-Florida Academic Team is comprised of 109 students who were nominated by their respective colleges to the All-USA Academic Team competition sponsored by USA Today and Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society. View a list of the 2014 All-Florida Academic Team. (PDF, 448KB)
Each year, PTK distinguishes 30 students by selecting them to the All-Florida First Team based on rating in competition with students throughout the state. This year's All-Florida First and Second Teams will be announced at the beginning of Florida College System Month (April 2014).
The Florida College System, in conjunction with the PTK Florida Region, hosts an annual event to recognize members of the All-Florida Academic Team. Students are honored at an awards ceremony during which each student is presented with a medallion.
