Minnesota Student All-Stars Celebrated for Academic Achievement
 Minnesota’s Academic All-Stars received recognition for their academic success on Aug. 2 at the 28th annual Gathering of Champions. The event is sponsored by Synergy & Leadership Exchange (Synergy) and was held at the Mall of America. The recognition ceremony honored students who were nominated by their educators and academic coaches.

 Nearly 4,000 students, friends and family attended one of 10 hour-long shows where All-Stars and their guests enjoyed entertainment by Dazzling Dave Yo-Yo artist, followed by Minnesota trivia questions where students had the chance to win exciting prizes donated by universities, companies and organizations throughout the state. More than 20 dignitaries, educational leaders and business executives, congratulated the All-Stars while Ameriprise Financial retirees served as volunteers for the event.

 This year’s logo design was submitted by Sophie Birkholz from Kennedy Community School. Sophie’s original design was featured on the programs, sponsor banner, t-shirts and other promotional materials. Sophie received $100 and a framed submission of her original art.

The ceremonies closed with the All-Stars walking across the stage, shaking hands with the dignitaries and receiving their commemorative ribbon. Before and after attending their recognition ceremony, All-Stars and their guests enjoyed discounts at stores throughout the mall and rides in Nickelodeon Universe®.
