GAM Student Contest PSA Participants:
Thank you very much for your submission into the GAM PSA Contest!!  There were many great entries, and deciding on winners was very difficult.  You are all winners, because you are advocates for gifted education and not afraid to stand up for your rights as gifted students.  That is admirable, and GAM would like to express appreciation to each of you.  Thank you for supporting GAM and gifted education in Missouri.  Winners will be notified individually on Friday, February 12, 2016.  We apologize for the delay and any problems with submissions.  We hope to see you all at Gifted Education Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, February 24, 2016.  Thanks again, and great job!
