The three most important factors are obviously grades, test scores, and the written application (more specifically, the essays). If you're in the top 10-20% of your class, have taken a reasonable number of the AP/Honors classes offered at your school, and do pretty well on the ACT or SAT (28+ or 1300+), then you're golden in terms of getting in. The essays and letters of recommendation are crucial for merit scholarships, so take your time, have some teachers critique them, and then start applying for the awards that you're not automatically considered for. For many of the more competitive and substantial awards, you should be near or at the top of your class, have an ACT of ~32/33+ or an SAT of ~1450+, and put even more care into the essays.
