A program designed to recognize Iowa High School students for academic excellence in the classroom and outstanding achievement

during state competitions.


The Bank Iowa Traveling Challenge Cup is a combined, statewide, year- long competition among all member high schools of the Iowa High School Athletic Association, Iowa High School Music Association, Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union and the Iowa High School Speech Association. A separate winner is determined for each of the four high school state classes.


Bank Iowa will provide a Crystal Challenge Cup to be displayed permanently in each winners school. In addition, a $2,000 stipend provided by Bank Iowa will be given to each winning school to be used towards enhancing the academic learning components that are now available within the entire school system for all students.
