The Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented is a nonprofit organization of parents, educators and others interested in promoting appropriate education for gifted and talented children. Each year, CAGT sponsors an awards program designed to recognize distinguished achievement in academics, leadership or the arts in children in Colorado ages 7-18. This year’s junior division student winner is Iara Melgarejo, a sixth-grader at Berry Creek Middle School and a recent graduate of Avon Elementary School. She won the award for multiple reasons, including her determination, growth mindset and resilience when presented with challenges, creative thought demonstrated in her work, leadership within student council and charity work, exceptional talent for playing and composing music and outstanding academic achievements. Congratulations Iara!
