Four students from four Anne Arundel County public high schools have been selected as semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship competition.

Annapolis, Arundel, Broadneck, and Severna Park high schools each have one student on the prestigious list which is comprised of about 16,000 student achievers nationwide.

Semifinalists in the competition, which is overseen by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, were selected from about 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 U.S. high schools who were top scorers on the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
