59 winter athletic and fine arts programs from around the Sioux Falls metro area have been awarded by the SDHSAA for academic achievement.

Each season the South Dakota High School Activities Association awards teams an academic achievement award if the group has a combined average GPA of 3.0 or higher. This is done during the fall, winter, and summer seasons.

The SDHSAA has released its list for winter 2019. Athletic and fine arts teams from Brandon Valley, Lincoln, O'Gorman, Roosevelt, and Washington all made the list. O'Gorman and Washington both had a city-high 13 programs awarded for the winter season.
