Annual academic talent search is accepting new students

Gifted children in grades two through eight are invited to join the 2001 Johns Hopkins Talent Search. Conducted nationwide since 1979 by the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) at Johns Hopkins, the CTY Talent Search provides families with information about a child's academic talent and connects families to a national resource for gifted children.
   The search is open to students who have scored at the 97th percentile or above on current standardized tests. Participating students take above-grade level tests at locations near their home.
   The application fee is $29 ($20 for children grades two through four).
   Forms are available from a school counselor or gifted coordinator or by calling CTY at 410-516-0278.
   Deadlines are in mid-November. Visit www.jhu.edu/gifted for more information.
