Every year we recognize individuals who embody the values of the organization. Normally we present our awards at our conference so this year we decided to honor our winners at our virtual November conference event!

The Affiliate of the Year Award is given to an affiliate the AECA Board nominates as showing outstanding effort throughout the year to their local members in Arkansas. This year our winner is the Central affiliate! Congratulations to Becky Henderson and the board!

The AECA Outstanding Board Member award is nominated by fellow board members. Outstanding board members contribute to the cause of better childhood education and show leadership in their position as a board member. Congratulations to Dee Cox!

The AECA Outstanding Member award is presented to a member who contributes to the cause of better childhood education and shows leadership in their local and state associations. Congratulations to Susan Edwards!

The Kathy Stegall Emerging Leader Award recognizes newer members of the organization who are already making a significant contribution to the Arkansas Early Childhood Association and to the field of early care and education and/or youth development in Arkansas and have demonstrated the potential for leadership and continuing service to the organization and to the field. Congratulations to Emma Tempest!

We hope you will join us in celebrating our winners! 💙
