Greetings to the 2022 Valedictorians of Siouxland! KCAU 9 is proud to be celebrating the 39th Anniversary of Best of the Class. Last two years we saw a small change in how we celebrated Best of the Class due to the pandemic. KCAU 9 is happy to announce that the 2022 event will be in person! On April 27th, Best of the Class will be at the Anderson Dance Pavilion in Sioux City.

Letters have been sent to over 120 schools in Siouxland. We are asking these schools to register their top academic student and submit a photo that will be used in the on-air announcements this coming May.

If you feel that the mailing didn’t make your school or if you have questions, please email Daniele Feenstra at

KCAU 9 plans to air all the announcements, saluting our Siouxland Valedictorians, May through June this spring. Please continue to check back as we will have a photo slide show, on-air video announcements and other mentions of congratulations from our Tri-State governors on this website page.

Congratulations to all of our 2022 graduating seniors from KCAU 9!
