Osakis students Alexa Hoffarth and Nils Hagen are winners in the Academics, Arts and Athletics (AAA) local contest.

Hoffarth went on to win Subsection 22 and was invited to a dinner in Fergus Falls where she was honored as the Region 6A, AAA recipient.

She now advances to the state AAA contest. She will attend the state AAA awards ceremony and, if selected, will be honored on March 14 at halftime of the Boys Class A State Basketball Tournament.

A girl and a boy from both a Class A and a Class AA school will receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship.

The purpose of the Minnesota State High School League’s AAA program is to honor high school seniors who have excelled in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in the fine arts.
