The National Merit Scholarship Competition (NMSC) recently announced the names of over 16,000 Semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Homestead High School is excited to announce that seven of our senior students have qualified as National Merit Semifinalists. Those students include: Camille Chen, Hannah D’Cruz, Maya Graupe, William Harwood, Benjamin Levin, Jasmine Xu, and George Zhu.
These academically talented seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 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 competition. Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
