Each year FLAG is honored to accept applications for four (4) annual awards.
The 2017 Award/Scholarship application period begins March 7, 2017 and
runs through August 1, 2017. All awards will be presented during the FLAG conference in St. Augustine, September, 2017.
Originally funded by the Nicholas Green Foundation and NAGC, National Association for Gifted Children, this award program is designed to recognize distinguished achievement in academics, leadership, or the arts, in children grades 3 through 6. One child per state can be named a Nicholas Green Distinguished Student and that winner receives a $500 U.S. savings bond and an NAGC Certificate of Excellence.
