The Florida Association for the Gifted provides three student scholarships/awards and two teacher awards annually.  Funds are raised through private donations and an Auction at the annual conference.

  • Excellence in Creative Teaching Award: established by FLAG to recognize teachers of the gifted that construct creative learning environments in which students and teachers alike explore, imagine and engage in a variety of thought provoking experiences.
  • Nicholas Green Distinguished Student Award: originally funded by the Nicholas Green Foundation and NAGC, National Association for Gifted Children, is an award program 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 $500 and an NAGC Certificate of Excellence.
