2017 KAGE Conference

40th Annual KAGE Conference - February 24 - 25, 2020

Please join us at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington as we celebrate 40 years of advocacy and service for Kentucky's gifted children and youth and the founding of KAGE. The 2020 KAGE Annual Conference continues the advocacy envisioned by KAGE's founders, featuring two days of presentations from national and state experts on topics and exhibits of interest to educators and parents of gifted children.

Let’s blow out candles, enjoy cake, and celebrate 40 years of advocating, networking, and learning relevant information about the needs of gifted children. Go home challenged and empowered to make a difference.
