WA National Merit semifinalists announced | Northwest | yakimaherald.com – Yakima Herald-Republic

Forty-two students at Interlake High School, a public school in Bellevue, are National Merit Scholarship Program semifinalists, more than any other high school in Washington state.

The school had 40 semifinalists last year, also making it the top school in the state. The private Lakeside School, in North Seattle, had the second-highest this year, with 27, the same number as last year.

The state’s semifinalists join roughly 16,000 other students nationwide who had the highest scores on the 2021 PSAT, a standardized test taken by high school juniors that helps qualify them for the award.

About 95% of the semifinalists nationwide are expected to be named finalists in February; of those, about 7,250 will go on to receive scholarships that together total about $28 million. To become a finalist, students must submit academic, extracurricular, employment and other information.
