What's the PSAT/NMSQT you ask? It is an academic competition for recognition and a way to earn college undergraduate scholarships. The PSAT/NMSQT is given in approximately 21,000 high schools across the country which is around 1.5 million students. Out of those students approximately 50,000 qualify for program recognition. Some 16,000 of the high scorers, representing less than 1 percent of the nation's high school graduating seniors, qualify as Semifinalists in each annual National Merit Program. They are the only participants who have an opportunity to advance in the competition for some 7,600 Merit Scholarship awards.

What IS the Ohio Means Jobs - Readiness Seal?

Ohio high school students can now earn recognition by showing that they are prepared to contribute to the workplace and their community. The Ohio Means Jobs - Readiness Seal is a formal designation students can earn on their high school diplomas and transcripts which indicate that they exhibit personal strengths, strong work ethic, and professional experiences that today's businesses need in an employee.

 

To earn the seal, motivated high school students must demonstrate certain professional skills required for success in today's workplace. Students must work with at least three experienced and trusted mentors who will validate the demonstration of these skills in three areas: school, work, and the community.

 

Students must demonstrate fifteen professional skills that were identified by the Ohio Department of Education, the Governor's Office of Workshop Transformation, and the Ohio Department of Higher Education. To meet the needs of Ohio businesses, these groups surveyed Ohio's business community, and selected the most "essential" skills necessary for success in the workplace.
