Districts were asked to submit photographs and narratives of Gifted & Talented students participating in enrichment activities to be compiled into a district poster that is now on display in the State Capitol during February. Nearly 70 Kentucky districts responded to the request, which made an impressive display showing our legislators the importance of gifted education as we celebrate Gifted Education Month in Kentucky.
