Nebraska born Leta Stetter Hollingworth was considered a pioneer in the field of Gifted Education. She spent much of her life advocating for the gifted and highly gifted children. Hollingworth worked extensively at Speyer School in New York City, with children who scored between 130 and 200 IQ on the Stanford-Binet. She was well known for considering the social/emotional as well as the intellectual needs of high ability students. She also conducted the first longitudinal study of children above 180 IQ.

The funding for this award is made possible by Nebraska Association For Gifted as a result of the tireless effort of Dr. Linda Silverman to recognize Leta Hollingworth. In an effort to recognize the present work of Dr. Silverman and the past work of Leta Hollingworth this award is made available.
