AGATE Mission Statement

AGATE is an independent organization promoting excellence in education, particularly as it relates to gifted and talented children and youth in Arkansas.

AGATE works to educate its members and the Arkansas community as to the nature and needs of gifted and talented children and youth, and to develop a community that recognizes, nurtures, and rewards the fulfillment of the unique individual potential of each child.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson signed a proclamation in October 2019 declaring the last full week in February as "Gifted and Talented Awareness" week.
