Congratulations to the nine Mt. Lebanon High School seniors who have been selected as National Merit Semifinalists in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Competition. They are among the highest scoring entrants in Pennsylvania. Based on the results of the October 2018 PSAT, less than 1% of the 1.6 million students who as juniors took the PSAT last fall from across the country, have been recognized as National Merit Semifinalists.
In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis.
Congratulations to our National Merit Semifinalists in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Competition.
