I have just recently received an email about the Torrance Legacy Awards for both Creative Writing and Visual Arts since I am part of the National Association for Gifted Children’s (NAGC’s) sub-committee on the arts. Professor Stephen T. Schroth describes this as a “tremendous opportunity for young people throughout the world to gain recognition for their talents and skills.”
Dr. E. Paul Torrance is best known for his research in creativity in addition to being the author of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, one of the definitive assessment tools on creativity. To know more about the Torrance Legacy Awards, click here to be taken to the official website.
