NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS ANNOUNCED
CCISD Is Home to 35

League City – The Clear Creek Independent School District is proud to announce 35 students at four high schools have been selected as semifinalists in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 8,300 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $34 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 competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title. To become a Finalist, a Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test (PSAT). The Semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes the student’s essay and information about the Semifinalist’s participation and leadership in school and community activities.

In Texas, juniors had to score at least 219 on last fall's qualifying test. Today, National Merit Scholarship announced the names of those who accomplished that feat. Congratulations to the following Clear Creek ISD students:
