The Illinois Student Assistance Commission has named its 2021-22 State Scholars for outstanding academic achievement.
State Scholars are chosen based on a combination of ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank, and generally represent the top 10% of their school.
The ISAC, a state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable, first introduced the designation in 1958.
The recognition does not include a monetary prize, but honorees will receive a congratulatory letter from ISAC and a certificate of achievement. Honorees also can download a digital Illinois State Scholar badge that can be displayed on their online profiles and social media platforms, and shared with high school counselors, prospective colleges, employers, family members and others.
The designation applies to the year the high school students will begin their post-secondary education, and this year the list includes more than 16,640 students from 676 schools.
