Three CVUSD Seniors Recognized as NMSP Semifinalists!

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) is a non-profit organization that honors the nation’s scholastically gifted students, and we are so proud to share that three Chino Valley Unified School District high school seniors have been identified as Semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program competition.

The competition is open to all U.S. high school students who meet published participation requirements and provides students the opportunity to qualify for pivotal post-secondary scholarships. Students are entered into the competition after completing their Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year in high school.

To move forward in the competition and progress to a Finalist standing, each of our Semifinalists must meet several program criteria that include enrolling full-time in a college or university following their senior graduation, earning the recommendation of their high school principal, completing the NMSC Online Scholarship Application (OSA), and submitting a personal essay that responds to an essay prompt that allows selection committee members the opportunity to become more acquainted with each applicant.

Congratulations Aiden, Allison, and Joel for this tremendous honor! Good luck in moving forward in the competition and becoming an NMSP Finalist!
