A HOBY Academic All-Star needs to be a HOBY alumnus who has completed the 12th grade or has earned their college degree by the spring of 2019 with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. After approval of an online application, Academic All-Stars will receive a certificate and official HOBY honor cord to wear at graduation. In addition, each participant will be included on the Academic All-Stars Honor Roll.
All-Stars must have a cumulative weighted 3.5+ GPA on a 4.0 scale. (If schools do not use a 4.0 scale, guidance counselors will need to convert grades accordingly. If the school does not weigh GPAs, cumulative unweighted GPA should be used.)
