COBB COUNTY, GA -- Fifty-three seniors from nine Cobb County high schools are among the 16,000 semifinalists for the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. These students now have the opportunity to compete for the 8,400 National Merit Scholarships that will be offered in the Spring of 2011.

To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, a student must maintain high grades throughout high school, earn a high score on the SAT and receive a recommendation from his or her principal. Each semifinalist must meet with a school guidance counselor to complete an application that includes a written essay and details about the student's involvement in the school and the community.
