Gov. Doug Burgum will welcome educators, students, administrators and community leaders to the seventh annual Governor’s Summit on Innovative Education on Tuesday, Aug. 15, at Cheney Middle School in West Fargo.

The daylong summit begins at 9 a.m. CT Tuesday with a keynote address from the governor.

Recipients of the #InnovativeND Awards also will be announced throughout the day.

Approximately 500 individuals have registered to attend the summit in person or virtually. A link to the livestreamed video will be posted Tuesday on the Governor’s Office website at www.governor.nd.gov.
