Lower Columbia College students are honored each year through the All-State Academic Team recognition program.
The program is a showcase for Washington's community and technical colleges because it honors the academic high achievers; students who have demonstrated a commitment to success in the classroom and in the communities where they live. This recognition demonstrates the state's commitment to scholarship and community service on the part of those attending the state's public community and technical colleges.
State team members are nominated by their community college presidents. Each All-Washington Academic Team member typically receives a scholarship funded by program sponsors (funding in any given year is determined by program sponsors). The state's public baccalaureate institutions and several private colleges also offer scholarships to award-winning transfer students. LCC recognizes team members each year at the Outstanding Student Awards Ceremony.
