On Tuesday, judges will gather at Ben Lomond High School in Ogden, Copper Hills High School in West Jordan and Timpview High School in Provo to consider which of this year's more than 800 Sterling Scholar nominees will proceed to the finals competition and ultimately be named among the Sterling Scholars of 2013.

Now in its 52nd year, the Sterling Scholar program continues to recognize academic excellence among seniors in Utah's public school system. Students are judged based on scholarship, leadership and service.

The Sterling Scholar program is independently implemented in five regions throughout the state. Only the Wasatch Front region is directly administered by the Deseret News and KSL Broadcast Group. Students from each high school are nominated in one of 13 categories: English, mathematics, social science, science, foreign language, computer technology, skilled and technical sciences education, family and consumer sciences, business and marketing, speech/drama, visual arts, music, and dance. One Sterling Scholar is named for each category as well as one General (overall) Sterling Scholar.
