All State Program

The Iowa Newspaper Association has a long-standing tradition of recognizing and honoring high school athletes through its All-State program. Iowa Newspaper Association members annually choose the state’s best to be members of the elite INA All-State teams in football, girls basketball, boys basketball and baseball. The selection results are made available to all member newspapers and certificates are sent to the honored athletes.

The INA uses all-district and all-conference lists that coaches create for nominations. INA members vote from these lists. 

INA also relies on sports writers to make up the All-State selection committees.
