National Merit semifinalists named

The National Merit Scholarship Corp. on Wednesday announced this year’s semifinalists in its annual academic competition.  The 16,000 semifinalists, including hundreds from Washington state, are among the top scorers on the 2011 Preliminary SAT, and represent fewer than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.  The number of semifinalists in each state is a function of how many graduating seniors it has.

Semifinalists may apply to become finalists, and finalists are eligible to receive scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corp., colleges and universities, and corporate sponsors.
