Sponsored by Wells Fargo and the N.C. High School Athletic Association, the award is a companion to the statewide Wells Fargo Cup.

The Conference Cup is based on regular season performances within conference play and is designed to recognize the best interscholastic athletic performances within each of the NCHSAA’s conferences.

The award has been sponsored by Wells Fargo and, prior to that, Wachovia, since 1980.

In most conferences, points are awarded based on participation and standings in conference play. Each conference determines its own method of awarding points.

The Wells Fargo State Cup will be announced next. It recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications, primarily based on performance in postseason play.
