WEST DES MOINES, IOWA Bank Iowa is pleased to announce the four winning Iowa High Schools in the Bank Iowa Traveling Challenge Cup, an honor that comes with a prestigious crystal award and $2,000. The winning schools are Waukee High School (4A), Decorah High School (3A), Kuemper Catholic High School (2A) and Audubon High School (1A). Waukee, Decorah and Kuemper Catholic High Schools are repeat winners from last year.

Introduced in 2007, the Bank Iowa Traveling Challenge Cup is a statewide competition designed to recognize Iowa high school students for academic excellence and outstanding achievement during state competitions. Points are assigned for every activity in which a school reaches a state competition, advances in a state competition, receives Division I ratings and earns academic recognition from either the IHSAA, IGHSAU, IHSSA and IHSMA. Winning schools in each of the state's four classifications (1A, 2A, 3A and 4A) are determined based on the best combined score.

"This is our tenth year presenting the Bank Iowa Traveling Challenge Cup. What we love about this award is the opportunity we have to recognize student accomplishments across all school activities as well as in the classroom," said Jim Plagge, President and CEO of Bank Iowa, headquartered in West Des Moines.
