National Merit Scholarship Program

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation has announced that 11 School District of Palm Beach County seniors have won its National Merit $2,500 Scholarship, and one student has received its Corporate-Sponsored Merit Scholarship.

In April, the Corporation announced that Hannah Dickinson from Jupiter Community High School was the recipient of the Corporate-Sponsored Merit Scholarship. Her award is courtesy of NextEra Energy, Inc.

All National Merit Scholarship winners were selected for having the “strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.”

The judging committee reviewed each student’s academic record, the difficulty level of subjects studied, grades earned, Preliminary SAT scores, contributions and leadership in school and community activities, an essay, and a recommendation from a high school official.
