Three students have been awarded migrant education scholarships, according to the Merced County Office of Education.
Norma Huerta of Chowchilla High School won the top scholarship, worth $500, while Livingston High's Bertha Gomez and Pitman (Turlock)'s Jorge Contreras each earned $100 scholarships.
Applicants for the Migrant Education Region III scholarships were measured by grade point average, educational goals, community involvement and financial need, the county office of education said in a press release.
Huerta, along with winners from the other 23 regions throughout California, will participate at the 31st annual State Migrant Parent Conference scheduled for March 19-21 at the Westin Hotel in Los Angeles.

All three winners will be honored at a parent advisory committee meeting on Nov. 30.
