The 2010 UPA National All American Recipients
MINNEAPOLIS (June 2010) – UPA is proud to announce the 2010 National Scholastic & Talent All American recipients. These outstanding athletes rose above over 850 candidates to earn their titles.
The UPA National All American competition is designed to recognize outstanding scholastic and talent from athletes who cheer and/or dance. This is the highest individual honor awarded at the AmeriCup Championship. It encompasses so much more than just talent. Individuals are scored on their transcript, essay, and resume prior to their arrival in Minneapolis. Once on site, candidates take part in a private interview and perform a talent presentation. Cheer and dance experts judge all areas of competition. This event is open to anyone. Individuals do not need to attend the AmeriCup with a team in order to compete in the All American event. They may come on their own.
