Mission Statement

Utah Association for Gifted Children advocates for the diverse population of gifted children in the State of Utah. We advance the understanding of the academic and social/emotional needs of gifted children among community leaders, policy makers, educators and parents. We promote the development of quality services to provide educational opportunities for gifted students. We increase the capacity of educators and parents to be agents of change in their schools and communities and in the lives of gifted children.

Membership benefits include an online newsletter published regularly reporting recent events and developments in the field of gifted education, an annual conference registration discount, a voice at the state capitol through a legislative liaison and updates on legislation affecting gifted education, an opportunity to join a UAGC affiliate in your local area, information about UAGC scholarships and awards, and an opportunity to participate on a UAGC Board Committee.

Each year at the annual summer conference, UAGC takes the opportunity to honor people who have made outstanding contributions to gifted children in our state. Please consider outstanding educators, volunteers, and students whom you might nominate to receive an award.  Descriptions of the awards and a link to the nomination form is found here.  The deadline for submissions is April 15th.

UAGC is now accepting Call for Proposals for the 2017  Annual UAGC Summer Conference.  The conference will be held June 13-15, 2017 in Park City, Utah.  If you have a topic or classroom innovation to share with educators and parents of gifted children, please consider presenting. Proposals will be accepted through April 15, 2017.  Please click here to access the application form.
