They competed and they conquered.  Layton High recently chose the Sterling Scholars for 2017.  Students hoping to compete for the title submitted an application and participated in an interview.  There are 14 categories students can compete in.  Within each category, participants are judged on leadership, scholarship and service.

This year’s scholars have a combined average 3.8 GPA and a combined average ACT Score of 28.1.  Students prepared to compete by reviewing to answer questions in their competition field or by preparing to perform for the judges.  Adam Simpson prepared a freestyle drum performance.  Mackenzie Turner prepared two monologues; one comical and one dramatic.  Whether they had been encouraged by a mom or sibling, teacher or mentor, competitors all agreed the most important element was being passionate about their subject.  The high school recognition is the first level of competition.  Winners will advance to a region competition and if they place at region they will advance to a state competition.  State winners have opportunities to win scholarship money to attend Utah Colleges and Universities.  A complete list of winners can be found on the Layton High web page.
