KAGE Conference 2019

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the KAGE 39th Annual Conference February 25-26, 2019 in Lexington at the Marriott Griffin Gate. Please join us as we celebrate 39 years of advocacy and service for Kentucky’s gifted children and youth and the founding of KAGE. Forty years ago a group of concerned individuals met to discuss what they could do to champion the needs of gifted children. From that discussion the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education was founded. The 2019 KAGE Annual Conference continues the advocacy envisioned by KAGE’s founders. The Conference will feature two days of presentations from national and state experts on topics and exhibits of interest to educators and parents of gifted children.

EXHIBITORS are an important part of the conference experience. This is a great way to showcase your products and services to gifted educators and administrators from across Kentucky and neighboring states.
