TAGT is once again sponsoring a student video contest, Gifted is…, and seeks to showcase the voice of gifted students across the state, as well as encourage creativity and collaboration.
The overall goal is to explore what it means to be gifted from a student perspective. Each video submission should explore how gifted and talented students can elevate their world at home, at school or in broader communities. We hope to identify the best things happening in those areas that allow students to achieve their full potential and completely express their gifts and talents!
Two winning entries will be awarded a $500 prize to be used by the school’s campus to support the gifted program and will be shown during the Inspire Awards Celebration at giftED17. Select entries will be used in various ways to showcase student perspectives.
So, are you ready to gather a group of gifted students on your campus and channel their inner Steven Spielberg? To get started, please review the following contest guidelines:
