“However gifted an individual is at the outset, if his or her talents cannot be developed because of his or her social condition, because of the surrounding circumstances, these talents will be still-born.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir (French Writer, 1908-1986)

The New Student Essay Contest for 2015 has begun!

Maryland Gifted and Talented students in public school grades 6-12 are invited to participate in an essay contest titled:

“What have gifted education opportunities meant to me?”

Entries must be postmarked by January 15, 2015. See the Students section for details.

Good luck!
