|Divine Savior Holy Angels
||The Prairie School
|Kenosha Christian Life
||West Bend West
|Madison La Follette
Two of the 33 schools, Baraboo and Stoughton, are receiving the honor for the fifth time in the five years since the award’s inception. Five of this year’s recipients are being presented with the award for the fourth time, including Brookwood, Fort Atkinson, Kimberly, The Prairie School and Watertown. Nine schools are receiving the recognition for the first time.
Recipients will be presented the Award of Excellence at the fall Area Meetings, which will be conducted in-person, and will be recognized for the achievement on the WIAA website and at the 2022 Annual Meeting.
