Call for Proposals

Deadline to Submit--April 3, 2020

Emphasis for proposals is on lessons, activities, and methods that address the needs of diverse populations in the gifted classroom. Preference will also go to sessions that involve hands-on activities that educators can take back and incorporate immediately into their classrooms.  This need is based on feedback from conference attendees as well as correlates with the theme of this year's conference "20/20: Focus" through the lenses of Connection, Diversity, and Innovation.  Other informational and theory-based proposals are certainly welcome and will be considered, but are not a priority. 

Share your expertise and be a part of connecting our gifted community!
