2020 National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These three students at A-TECH qualified as Semifinalists by taking the October 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the high-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 and represent the highest scoring entrants in the state of Nevada.

This year A-TECH has three students who have qualified as a Semifinalist in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. If you see these students please feel free to congratulate them on their outstanding efforts and encourage their pursuit of academic excellence.

Congratulations to A-TECH’s 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists

These Academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the completion for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 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 completion.

The Semifinalists and their high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the Semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT or ACT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.

We wish each of the Semifinalists the best as they continue through the 2020 NMSC competition through October 2019 for the status of Finalist in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Corporation Competition!
