MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School Principal Dr. William Miron announced today that sixteen senior students from Millburn High School have been selected as Semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Competition.  They are Jai Bansal, Andrew Chen, Henry Chen, Noah Gottlieb, Alan Gu, Jennifer Guo, Audrey Laude, Jessica LI, Akshay Nagella, Theodoe Nyunt, Raghav Pant, Christopher Ren, Victoria Shi, Mehmen Sirtalan, Yicong Wu and Christine Yang

They are among 16,000 Semifinalists nationwide, a third of the 50,000 high scorers. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state. 

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 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 about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 U.S. high schools entered the 2018 National Merit Scholarship program by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The number of Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors. 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. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state.
