PTK recognizes the academic achievement of college students and provides opportunities for its members to grow as scholars and leaders. Established in 1918, PTK has grown to more than 3.5 million members in the United States and worldwide. Building on the success of the national All-USA Team Program, PTK launched the All-State Academic Team Program to provide recognition at the state level for top community college students.
Grades, leadership, and community service determine selection to the All-California First, Second and Third Teams. The students selected represent some of the best of the 1.8 million students enrolled in California's 116 community colleges. 

"These students approached college with a commitment to academic excellence,” said Larry Galizio, Ph.D., President and CEO of the Community College League of California. “We are proud to sponsor this award and provide all team members a medallion and certificate recognizing their accomplishments.” 
An official 2023 PTK Award Yearbook will be mailed to all winners, college presidents, and PTK advisors. All colleges with an All-California Award Winner are encouraged to celebrate their student(s).
