33 se­niors rec­og­nized as 2017 Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ship Semi­fi­nal­ists

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

Thirty-three Con­estoga se­niors have been rec­og­nized for their achieve­ments as Na­tional Merit Semi­fi­nal­ists. This recog­ni­tion is based on their per­for­mance on the 2015 Pre­lim­i­nary SAT/Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ship Qual­i­fy­ing Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

Na­tion­wide there are ap­prox­i­mately 16,000 semi­fi­nal­ists in the an­nual 62nd Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram. They rep­re­sent less than 1 per­cent of United States high school se­niors, in­cludes the high­est-scor­ing en­trants in each state. The num­ber of Semi­fi­nal­ists in a state is pro­por­tional to the state’s per­cent­age of the na­tional to­tal of grad­u­at­ing se­niors.

Th­ese stu­dents will go on to com­pete for some 7,500 schol­ar­ships through the Na­tional Merit Cor­po­ra­tion or its spon­sor­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions.
