Forty-Five HCPSS Students Named 2021 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

September 10th, 2020

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced that 45 HCPSS students are semifinalists in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

More than 1.5 million juniors in 21,000 high schools across the country entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring.
