Leadership Fellowships

The Iowa AEYC Leadership Fellowship will enable the successful participants to develop their leadership skills through attendance at state or national professional development opportunities, and in turn they will be expected to provide leadership to the early childhood field in our state. 



Iowa AEYC will grant a Children's Champion award to a person who has made significant contributions on the state level to improving the quality of care and education of young children.  The person can be any professional, legislator, volunteer, or anyone currently living or working in the state, who has demonstrated an outstanding service or achievement to benefit Iowa's young children.  Children's Champion nomination form.

Iowa AEYC will grant a Friend of Young Children award to an Iowa AEYC member who has made a significant contribution to improving the quality of care and education of young children.  Friend of Young Children nomination form.
