This article describes the process of identification of intellectually gifted students in Sarajevo Canton. The goal of the identification was to select those students who could benefit from a significant improvement in psychological welfare by participating in the “Winter school for gifted students”. The identification was designed according to contemporary theories of giftedness and according to the specific nature of the program. Identification took place in three phases: nomination by a teacher and two phases of selection. The instruments used in selection were the Raven Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM), Mill Hill Vocabulary Scale (MHV), the Problem test (PT) and the Torrance test of creative thinking, verbal form (TTK). The results of nominated students were compared with the results of students from a comparative sample. Results indicated that selected students possessed higher general ability, and higher ability in problem solving and creative thinking. Gifted students were selected by the procedure described. It is reasonable to expect that these students will satisfy the high cognitive requirements of the program planned for gifted students.
