Recognition Ceremonies

CTY award ceremonies recognize students who achieve top scores in the CTY Talent Search. There are two types of award ceremonies—High Honors and Grand Honors.

High Honors

Students who earn High Honors achieve Advanced level in one or both test areas at the time of testing.

Families of high honors recipients will receive an update about award ceremonies once confirmed.

Grand Honors

Students who earn Grand Honors achieve scores that are two to three grades above Advanced level on tests taken between July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 will be invited to the Grand Ceremony, tentatively scheduled for fall 2020.
