SANDY, Utah (AP) - Sixteen Utah students are being honored for earning the highest possible score on the ACT college readiness test.
The high schoolers will be recognized at a luncheon Tuesday at Salt Lake Community College's Miller campus in Sandy, during the annual conference of the Utah ACT State Organization.
They'll receive a plaque to mark their achievements.
The ACT exam consists of English, math, reading, and science tests that are scored on a scale of 1 to 36. A student's composite score is the average of all four subtests.
Students honored Tuesday have an average composite score of 36.
The honorees include five students from Salt Lake City, two students each from Provo, Riverton, Midvale, and Woods Cross, and one each from Orem, Murray and Kaysville.
