The NY Gifted Education Examiner has always been a fan of monetizing your gifted child (what's the fun of having a kid who is good at things, if you can't use it to your advantage?).
To that end, we've recommended:
And now, School Search Solutions (SSS), a division of The School Choice Group (SCG), a global education consultancy, in collaboration with the Parents of Accelerated Learners (P.A.L.) Workshops, NYC, announced on Friday, October 11, 2013, the Michael Perelstein Memorial Scholarship Fund Discover Your Passion competition winners.
This competition was targeted toward New York City students from kindergarten through 8th grade, who showed exceptional promise and passion for an individual interest in academic fields, sports, music, the arts, community service, entrepreneurship or technology.
The focus on individual passion and the story behind the funds are what make this scholarship unique. Each of the competition winners had to submit a sample of previous work, nomination letters and a description of how the award monies will be used to further their unique passion.
“I know Michael would be proud to have provided opportunity for young people to pursue their personal passions and I am honored to be able to keep his memory alive by nurturing these children’s educational interests," said Elizabeth Perelstein, the Chair and Founder of the School Choice Group.
