GPQB All State Teams

At the end of every regular season beginning with the 2015-16 competition year, the GPQB blog has awarded the top five players in the state the status of first team all-state, and the next five second team all-state. These teams commemorate some of the hard work these students have put in excelling at academic competition such that they have gained respect across Pennsylvania as sharp minds and high achievers.
