The National Merit Scholarship Corporation has released the names of $2,500 scholarship winners.

The number of winners in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the nation’s graduating high school seniors. The winners of these scholarships are judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, the corporation said.

This is the second round of scholarship announcements, and two more are expected.
