GIFTEDNESS KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES

The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) organized the Giftedness Knows No Boundaries Campaign. National education organizations and individuals interested in promoting equity and excellence in our Nation's homes, schools, and communities can support the campaign by actively promoting and sharing key information about the nature and needs of gifted children amongst others in their networks. The Campaign begins with awareness building about children with gifts and talents and will grow into a movement to improve policies and practices that create supportive environments where these children can thrive.

lease visit www.GiftednessKnowsNoBoundaries.org often as NAGC will regularly update the site with new resources and information.
