Three Davis County high school students are among 16 Utah teens honored Tuesday for top Utah ACT scores on exams taken during 2012.
The local students honored at a Salt Lake City ceremony were Natalie Adair and Chris Carey, both of Woods Cross High School, and Madeline Knowlton of Davis High School, Kaysville.
Students received engraved plaques commemorating their achievement.
The ACT, required before admission to many colleges, is a curriculum-based exam that consists of tests in English, math, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1 to 36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four scores. All students honored earned an average score of 36.
On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of all test takers earns the top score of 36.
