Nominations open for gifted education awards


The Kentucky Association for Gifted Education is accepting nominations for its awards programs.

The Distinguished Student Award recognizes a student from grades 4-6 who has distinguished achievement in academics, leadership or the arts and has made a contribution to the community at a level beyond what is expected of a child in the student’s age group.

The Service and Advocacy Awards recognize people who have made significant contributions to gifted education and who have a record of advocacy for gifted and talented children and youth.

The nomination deadline is Dec. 1. Visit KAGE’s website for more information and links to nomination forms. KAGE will announce the award recipients during its annual conference Feb. 25-26 in Lexington.
