State AP Scholars recognized
Two South Dakota high school students received the College Board’s State AP® Scholar Awards based on outstanding performance on the 2013 Advanced Placement® Exams.
Adam Bierstedt, Lincoln High School, Sioux Falls, and Yekaterina Grigoryeva, Washington High School, Sioux Falls, are among 106 students nationwide to receive this honor.
The College Board confers this distinction on the top male and female students in each U.S. state and the District of Columbia with scores of 3 or higher on the greatest number of AP Exams, and then the highest average score (at least 3.5) on all AP Exams taken.
The College Board’s AP Program provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.
Congratulations to our two South Dakota AP scholars!
