Elizabeth Leiser from Kutztown was honored as one of the brightest young students in the world at a recent awards ceremony sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.

Elizabeth, a participant in the CTY Talent Search, was recognized for scoring exceptionally high on a rigorous, above-grade-level test.

Advanced students in second through eighth grades take challenging tests that can reveal their true capacity for learning.

Leiser, a student at Northwestern Lehigh Middle School, was one of more than 27,000 students from more than 65 countries who participated in the CTY Talent Search between March 2016 and February 2017.

Only about 25 percent of Talent Search participants earned the High Honors designation.
