Last Chance to Submit Your Proposal


The deadline to submit your presentation for The Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children (MnAEYC) and the Minnesota School-Age Care Alliance (MnSACA) Annual State Conference is this Sunday, July 23.

We’re excited to announce the theme, Creating Connections, Cultivating Communities. MnAEYC-MnSACA was created to build a community between the early childhood and school-age care fields. This collaboration is unique across the country and will serve us well now more than ever with increasing interactions in new programs like voluntary pre-k, new requirements around quality rating and improvement systems and professional development, and what it means to be in these professions.

Keeping equity at the center, we can and should work together to create connections and cultivate community, so we can tackle this ever changing landscape together for the betterment of children and families and for the health of the fields.

What are the benefits of presenting?

  • Presenter honorarium (New this year!)
  • Opportunity to present at a premier event with 1,000 early childhood and afterschool professionals in attendance.
  • Enhance your credibility and stature in the field
  • Contribute to your community's expertise
  • Challenge yourself in a new way

Sessions should meet the professional and personal development needs of program directors & coordinators, teachers, and front-line staff. Breakout sessions should present best practices, innovative and evidence-based strategies, research and resources in a variety of topic areas.

We are committed to creating a diverse, safe, and welcoming space for participants to learn and share. We want to make sure we receive conference session proposals from the widest audience as possible, including from you! All workshop proposals are welcome and will be considered.

We will give special attention to those that incorporate the theme. Submitting proposals is easy! Simply complete the online proposal form here.  Check out the FAQs before filling out the form, including information about a new break-out session type!
