Cupertino community briefs for the week of May 7

National Merit scholars

Five Cupertino students are among about 1,000 high school seniors named as winners in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship program.

Cupertino High School student Preetha S. Kumar, Homestead High School student Joseph H. Huang and Monta Vista High School seniors Grace Chen, Kevin J. Lin and James Y. Zhang are among those who have won scholarships financed by corporations, company foundations and other business organizations.

Most awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide stipends that range from $1,000 to $10,000 each year. Some provide a single payment of $2,500 to $5,000.

The announcement marks the first of the awards in 2021 by the National Merit Scholarship Corp. It will name recipients of $2,500 scholarships May 12, and winners of college-sponsored merit scholarships June 2 and July 12.

Springtime workshops

The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority is exploring local wildlife this month in some online workshops.

“Animal Families,” a family-friendly program about some types of wildlife families, is set for May 7, noon-1 p.m. The workshop will cover different parenting styles—species that care for their young vs. those that have more of a hands-off parenting style—and family groupings—animals that live in big colonies vs. those who prefer to stay solo.

Register at Eventbrite.com to receive the Zoom link.

The next day, May 8, Phoenix of Phoenix’s Curiosity Cabinet will talk about local nocturnal animals from 10:30-11:30 a.m. This program will be hosted live on the Open Space Authority’s Facebook page, although a Facebook account is not required to access it. To view the workshop, visit www.facebook.com/openspaceauthority/videos.
