Eleven students from four of Canyons District’s traditional comprehensive high schools have been named semi-finalists in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship program.

They join about 16,000 others who this week advanced in the prestigious competition to vie for 7,500 scholarships worth $33 million.

Finalists are chosen from 1.6 million students at more than 22,000 high schools. The nationwide pool of semifinalists represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. The number is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors. The students and their schools are:
