293 District 202 students named 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars

Two hundred ninety three District 202 high school seniors have been named 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars because of their superior academic potential.

The 293 State Scholars is a new record-high for District 202.

This year’s total is up nearly 17 percent from last year’s 251. Last year was the first in several that the number of District 202 State Scholars fell, dropping slightly from 266 two years ago.

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) awards the honor each year to students based on SAT or ACT and/or class rank at the end of their sixth high school semester. High school guidance counselors work in conjunction with ISAC to determine the winners.

Each year’s State Scholar group comprises the top 10 percent of high school seniors from 737 high schools statewide

The Illinois State Scholar program recognized about 19,000 high school students statewide as 2018 State Scholars.

This year’s State Scholars include:  

  • PHSCC – 57 (down from 60 last year)
  • PEHS – 72 (up from 54 last year)
  • PNHS – 98 (up from 83 last year)
  • PSHS – 66 (up from 54 last year)

The 2018-19 District 202 Illinois State Scholars are:
