STERLING SCHOLAR ENTRANTS WILL BE FEATURED TUESDAY

Meet the Sterling Scholar Class of '92.

More than 500 of the state's most outstanding high school seniors will be featured in a special - and exclusive - Deseret News section Tuesday. The eight-page section will include names and photographs of the students who were selected to represent their schools in this year's Deseret News-KSL program.The students, selected on the basis of scholarship, leadership and citizenship, represent their peers in 11 major fields of study.

Categories include English, speech/drama, mathematics, social science, science, foreign language, visual arts, industrial education, home economics, business education and music. A final category of general scholarship features students who are outstanding in all fields of study.

These same young men and women will be facing judges in preliminary competition on Wednesday, March 18, at Bonneville, Cottonwood and Hillcrest high schools. Each judging site features 15 schools from three geographical areas.

Five "finalists" will be selected in each category in each region. The five from each region will participate in final judging in Salt Lake City on April 1.

During the final judging, a winner and two-runners-up will be selected in each category, but the results will remain confidential until the televised awards ceremony on April 8 at 7 p.m. on KSL-TV, Channel 5.
