Awards

CTY knows bright students thrive on praise and recognition, yet far less public recognition is given for academic talent than for sports, music, or other abilities. All students who accept the challenge of taking the Talent Search test receive a Certificate of Participation. Top Talent Search students attend award ceremonies and the very top students are invited to attend the Grand Ceremony at Johns Hopkins University. In addition, all honorees receive a certificate of High Honors.
