Conard High School Principal Julio Duarte announced today that Katherine Kopp, Jack Moore, and Douglas Olmstead have been named semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit
The process of becoming a semifinalist begins during the junior year of high school when students take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Students named semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state, a ranking that includes less than 1 percent of all U.S. high school seniors, according to the National Merit Scholarship Corp. This year, 16,000 seniors in the country qualified.
All National Merit semifinalists now have the opportunity to compete for $32 million in National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in spring 2018.
