  • The leading candidate(s) are calculated by multiplying the GPA by 250 and then adding that to the ACT multiplied by 27.777 or SAT divided by 1.6.

After the allotted number of nominees has been reached
, the principal may choose to send another name for consideration provided they too have earned a minimum of 30 on the ACT composite.  After review by the NDASSP review committee, the candidate’s principal will be notified only if their status has been considered upgraded to an official nomination.  Schools are reminded to submit their leading candidates first as additional candidates for consideration may be limited.
