Nine local students have been named winners of 2014 National Merit Scholarships.

Students from Rock Hill, York and Clover, and Lancaster County were selected as winners in four categories.

The competition for this year’s round of National Merit scholarships started in October 2012, when approximately 1.5 million high school juniors took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Of those test-takers, only a handful were selected to be awarded more than $35 million in college scholarships
