CAGT Statements

Words seem inadequate to express our sorrow for Boulder County and the surrounding communities who have lost their homes, businesses and much more in the recent fires – it is incomprehensible! Please know that our hearts are with you during this difficult time. CAGT sends our love and support to everyone impacted by this devastating tragedy.

The 2021 CAGT Art Contest was a HUGE success!  There were over 280 submissions that were narrowed to a field of 100 of the top entries. Attendees from Colorado, the nation and all over the world voted for their favorite from each division and the results are in! Click here to go to our Conference page and scroll down to see the top three in each division.

CAGT is excited for Season 2 of our Conversations with CAGT!
FaceBook Live Tuesday evenings at 5:00

Each Tuesday at 5:00 pm MDT, we will live stream a 20 – 30 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A with a local or national expert on a topic current and relevant to our GT community. Please join us for these informational conversations!

Tuesday January 11th, we were delighted to have Dina Brulles, Ph.D., Gifted Education Director at Paradise Valley USD and the Gifted Program Coordinator at ASU share with us her presentation Building Inclusive Gifted Programs to Enfranchise and Empower All Gifted Learners. Parents, teachers and school administrators, were encouraged to consider methods and strategies that can help integrate the needs of our diversely gifted learners into every aspect of school. Dr. Brulles shared methods and processes that enfranchise and empower all gifted learners.

On Tuesday January 18th, we will have the Colorado GT2 join us for this CWC. This is a group of middle and high school gifted educators from around the Front Range area who collectively advocate for the unique needs of secondary gifted students. They will share who they are, their work and information about the student piece of their group – the Colorado Gifted and Talented Student Board which is a multi-district group of students who are advocating for themselves and their peers in a variety of ways and at various educational conferences. Advocates for secondary GT need to collaborate on strategies that enhance the secondary educational experience that is dominated by AP / IB curriculum. Come join the discussion with a panel of secondary GT advocates who developed a grassroots, statewide, collaborative coalition to support the academic and social emotional needs of middle and high school GT students. Please join us Tuesday January 18th for another enlightening presentation.
