Reminder: Students have the opportunity to be part of 2024 KSDE Great Ideas in Education Conference

Kansas students have two opportunities to be showcased during the 2024 Kansas State Department of Education’s (KSDE) Great Ideas in Education Conference.  

Student performances 

KSDE is looking for recordings of student performances. These recorded performances will be played for all attendees during the general sessions. Performances should be between five and 10 minutes in length and may be a compilation of multiple performances. Please complete this Google form to be considered. 

Art contest 

KSDE also is holding the student art contest. This is open to all Kansas K-12 public and private school students. Each contest entry must include the student’s name and the student’s classroom teacher’s information. 

Entries must be postmarked by May 24, 2024. All winners will be recognized during the KSDE Great Ideas in Education Conference.
