Does your child grasp concepts quickly and are they able to connect ideas across subjects and experiences?  Do they have an active working memory and like to delve deeply into their learning? You might have a GT student! GT screening and testing requires parent/guardian permission by the campus deadline. 




AISD Gifted and Talented Showcase

AISD is hosting the 2nd annual Austin ISD GT Student Showcase. Project submissions will be accepted from March 1-31 and will showcase exemplary GT student work in May on our main AISD website.

The 2023 GT Student Showcase Theme is "Find the Good" which comes from a Jesse Owens quote:

"Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it and you'll start believing in it."

You will find all the details on the links below:

Note: AISD will only accept ONE link for each project submission. If students have multiple links, they need to find a way to organize/collect them into one link... for example they can create a Google Slide Deck or website and include all their links
