Eight area seniors -- three from Berwyn's Conestoga High School alone -- have scored $4,000 college scholarships from the Siemens Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the electronics giant.

Children of Siemens U.S. employees are eligible for the Siemens Merit Scholarship, and winners are selected based on their PSAT scores, academic record and extracurricular activities. Their school must also submit a recommendation on their behalf, and the students must submit a personal essay as well. The foundation itself is geared toward supporting education initiatives in the STEM fields, according to a press release from the company.

The eight winners from the Philadelphia region are Alexander Carrer, Kevin Li and Alexander Teti, all of Conestoga High School; Matthew Owens of Upper Merion Area High School; Sarah Payonk of Spring-Ford High School; Julia Krusen of B. Reed Henderson High School; Lauren Salig of Downington High School East Campus; and Jonathan San Miguel of the University Scholars Program in West Chester.
