Tuesday, October 15, 2002

National Merit Scholarship competition

Justin Mason, a junior at Storm Lake High School, has been named a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist in the 2003 Merit Scholarship competition. Semifinalists such as Mason will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 8,000 Merit Scholarship Awards worth a total of $30 million that will be offered next spring.

To become a finalist, Mason must complete a detailed application form that includes a record of very high academic performance, endorsements and recommendations from SLHS teachers and school administrators, an SAT score confirming his earlier qualifying test performances and a self-descriptive essay about his participation and leadership in school and community events.

Mason is the son of Don and Julia Mason of Nemaha.
