Illinois State Scholars Announced
for Class of 2020 at HHSStudent test scores and class ranks are converted to IL Standard Test Scores (ISTS) and IL Standard Rank Scores. From those scores, an IL Weighted Selection Score (WSS) cutoff is determined by ISAC. Students with an ISTS of 30 or higher (ACT score of 30 or better – Junior year only OR converted SAT score to ACT score (conversion table) …the Feb. or April Test dates are used) are automatically designated as State Scholars. All other IL State scholars are eligible if they have a WSS that is greater than or equal to this year’s cutoff score of 47. WSS is derived from adding the ISTS and ISRS (class rank) scores together. The goal in mind is naming the top 10% of Senior Students in the State of Illinois. FORMULA
After a months-long delay because of the COVID-19 pandemic, qualified Illinois high school students were designated as 2021-22 State Scholars on April 12, 2021.
The congratulatory letters that were sent to ALL scholars included information regarding a digital Illinois State Scholar badge issued by ISAC. State Scholars can display the badge on their online profiles and social media accounts, and share them with high school counselors, prospective colleges, employers, family members and others. Scholars may access the badges by visiting the State Scholar Badges area of the ISAC Student Portal and then following the on-screen prompts or these instructions.NATHAN BELLAVERVANESSA COMPTONALLYSON DEVOREMARIA HERNANDEZSARAH HUBERCATHERINE LEIBLERYLEE MORFORDBROOK OZIERKYLEE PASTROVICHELLA PFEIFER
