About the Award: The purpose of this award program is to inspire children to achieve to their fullest potential, highlight exceptional students and to draw attention to the educational needs of our nation’s gifted and talented students.
Nicholas Green was a bright seven-year old who was killed in a senseless shooting. His parents wanted to keep his memory alive so they donated money they had saved for his college expenses to fund this award. The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) had administered this program until 2013 when the funds were depleted. The Massachusetts Association for Gifted Education is keeping it alive with donations from our members and friends of the gifted and talented.
The recipient of the Nicholas Green Award will receive a certificate and a scholarship to participate in an enrichment program of his/her choosing (i.e. summer arts, robotics or other summer workshop/camp, online course, etc.) Funding to defray the costs of the program will be a maximum of $500 per individual.
