Twenty-nine Littleton Public Schools seniors, from all three of the district’s high schools, have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship program or the National Hispanic Recognition program. High school seniors are chosen for exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test used for program entry.
Eight students were named National Merit semifinalists and an additional 19 were named National Merit commended scholars. To be named a semifinalist, a student must score in the top range of the PSAT.
The following LPS students were named:
To become a National Merit Finalist, students must not only have an outstanding academic record, they also must be endorsed and recommended by their principal. Candidates submit their SAT scores, a detailed scholarship application, including an essay, and submit information about their participation and leadership in school and community activities. Finalists will be notified in February.
Two students were named College Board National Hispanic Recognition scholars.
Every year, College Board recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the test for their exceptional academic record and promise.
Congratulations to these LPS seniors!
