2001 Academic All-Star nominees 

Judges had many hard choices.

The veteran educators who selected this year's Academic All-Star team were faced with a daunting task — choosing the winners from a group of students twice as large.

The differences were, in many cases marginal. Most nominees were at or near the top of their classes, with high test scores and impressive achievements in school and community activities.
