Educator of the Year
Do you know an educator who inspires bright, curious, creative, or talented students?

Someone who works hard to understand them, sparks their imagination, serves as a mentor, runs or supports a program, or champions them? From the custodian’s office to the central office we know there are people who help these students be successful and we want to thank them.

 

We recognize that the work needed to help bright children strive toward their potential depends on the districts, schools, and teachers in Massachusetts. We know that there are no mandates, policies, or funding for gifted education, but we also know that there are educators and districts out there still working very hard on behalf of the academic, as well as the social and emotional needs, of some of our most highly able children regardless of their appearance, socio-economic status, or background. We believe that those who take on these tasks should be recognized for their efforts and commitment.

 

MAGE will honor an educator in the state who works in public schools to support bright, curious, creative, gifted, and/or talented students. These individuals may work at the district, school, or classroom level.

 

If chosen from the entries around the state, they will receive free membership in MAGE, which will provide them with continual support in their efforts. They will get free MAGE 2020 conference registration for themselves and their immediate family. They will be recognized at the state conference, and information about this award will be sent to their district leaders and their local newspaper along with their photo receiving the award.

 

Legislator of the Year
Do you know a legislator who has supported the needs of bright, curious, creative, or talented students?

Someone who helps to advance the support of gifted children and their special needs? 

 

We believe that those support our mission should be recognized for their efforts and commitment. To that end, MAGE will honor this outstanding individual in the state who works to support legislation to support bright, curious, creative, gifted, and/or talented students.

 

If chosen from the entries around the state, they will receive free membership in MAGE. They will be recognized at the state conference, and information about this award will be sent to local newspapers along with their photo receiving the award.

Someone who helps to advance the understanding of gifted children and their special needs? Do they promote the establishment of programs, services and opportunities for gifted students?
