Welcome to the New Zealand Gifted Awareness Week Blog Tour for 2015.

It is time to get in touch if you would like to write to promote gifted awareness this June. Here is a post about how to participate. See the 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011 posts for even more blogs about giftedness. Contact Mary St George of Gifted Online to book for the tour. 
 
Gifted Awareness Week runs from 15-21 June, and the Blog Tour starts earlier, running from 8-21 June 2015.

Posts will be added in the table below as people offer to write.

 
Posts in italics are live. Posts in bold relate to government viewpoints and policies, open letters to Parliament, and other posts created for lobbying purposes. Posts in green are written by gifted children. Posts in red have had more than 500 views - please notify us if your post reaches 500 views by June 21. The hashtag for New Zealand Gifted Awareness Week is #NZGAW, which may be useful for sharing these posts. Items in purple are not blog posts, but have been a significant part of the discussion this Gifted Awareness Week.
