The Nicholas Green Foundation recognized a gifted student in each state, every year from 2000-2013. The award was made possible through a generous donation from the Green family, which was administered by NAGC (National Association for Gifted Children). Nicholas was a bright seven-year old who was killed in a senseless shooting while on vacation in Italy. His parents wanted to keep his memory alive, and they donated money they had saved for his college expenses to fund this award.


Although the money ran out in 2013, MAGE, together with the assistance of our sponsors, is continuing this recognition.


As you may know, there are no state funds currently earmarked for Gifted and Talented students in Massachusetts, nor are there any state-wide programs that help to challenge these students. MAGE feels that it is important to recognize and inspire advanced students. In lieu of a savings bond, the MAGE committee would like to defray costs for the students to participate in summer institutes, online courses, and other programs for high ability students. We believe that this option will have an important impact on the student’s life beyond a financial benefit. Often, it is through these specific programs that advanced students gain a sense of belonging and gain social-emotional skills in addition to the cognitive challenges.


Nominations are accepted each year from January through April 15th.

Additional sponsors are needed to continue this award.
