He's a National Merit Finalist!
Oyster Bay High School senior Nicholas Tardugno was named a Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program, placing him among the top one percent of the nation’s brightest and most promising students. Nick is one of 15,000 finalists in the running for one of three types of National Merit Scholarships: a National Merit $2,500 Scholarship, a corporate-sponsored award or a college-sponsored award. Of the 15,000 finalists, about 7,600 scholarship winners will be announced in the spring.
Nick was selected as a National Merit Finalist based on criteria that began with his outstanding score on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Other factors included his stellar academic record, his participation in school and community activities, his leadership abilities, and the honors and awards he received during his high school career. He also had to be recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn SAT scores that confirm his earlier performance on the qualifying test.
