The Arkansas Recognition Ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2013, on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Annually, students who participate in the Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search and qualify based on SAT and ACT scores are invited to celebrate their outstanding achievement at the Arkansas Recognition Ceremony on the campus of University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Students in the 5th Grade Talent Search who achieve high marks on the EXPLORE test are also recognized at this time.
To coordinate with the Duke TIP Recognition Ceremony, the Center organizes Talent Search Investigations which give students the opportunity to learn about possible careers and fields of study. Topics from Nanotechnology to Theater to Virtual Reality to Songwriting to the Trail of Tears give students a wide variety of options. Talent Search Investigations are held before the ceremony while parents participate in an informational question and answer session on topics of interest to the families of talented children and adolescents.
