More than 150 high school seniors from the Hudson Valley are among the approximately 16,000 semifinalists named Wednesday by the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program, which honors top academic ability and potential for college success.

The students named as this year's recipients in the 63rd annual program represent fewer than one percent of high school seniors in the nation.

About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to be named finalists, and about half the finalists will win a scholarship, either a $2,500 National Merit Scholarship or a merit scholarship sponsored by a college or corporation.

Here is a rundown of recipients from Westchester.
