The following students have been recognized in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Competition based on their PSAT score selection index. They are:
National Merit Semi-Finalists
National Merit Commended Students
About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarships Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semi-finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The Commended students scored in the top five percent in the nation. Congratulations!
