In 2019 AECA focused on the topic of Building Resilience and making an IMPACT. As early childhood professionals, we have all worked with children who have been exposed to toxic environments and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The sessions at the 2019 conference in October gave our state professionals more knowledge and confidence in working to have a positive impact on these children.

AECA has provided an annual conference since 1961 as a service to the early childhood education professionals of Arkansas. The 59th Annual conference will be held at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel in North Little Rock October 14-17, 2020. Registration information will be here soon. We hope to see you there!

2020 Conference Logo Contest

This year we are hosting a contest for our conference logo. The submissions will be displayed at the conference, on t-shirts and in the program. We are hoping to find a logo that represents that we are all in this early childhood education world together. The logo should show that we will accomplish more if we are all on the same page and working together. We want to show a cohesiveness among all early childhood educators in Arkansas. This is why our theme for this year’s conference is “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”. 

The winner will receive:

* state-wide recognition
* one free 2020 conference registration
* a free 1-year individual membership to AECA

You do not have to be a current AECA member to enter.

Your design should fit on an 8.5” x 11” paper. You may use up to 4 colors in your design. The design should include the 2020 theme, “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”, as a tagline or as the feature.

Please submit your original design or a design that incorporates the artwork of a child, then mail your submission to:
