D-86 students selected as National Merit semifinalists
HINSDALE – A host of students from Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South high schools were on the list when officials from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced Wednesday the names of about 16,000 semifinalists in the 59th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,000 National Merit Scholarships worth about $35 million that will be offered next spring.
To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more than half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
