Congratulations to each of our award winners and their families," said Boise Schools Superintendent Don Coberly. "The Boise School District is committed to providing the advanced, rigorous coursework and highly skilled teachers students need to earn this recognition."

These academically talented high school seniors now have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered this spring.
