Professional development and the recognition of excellence are of critical importance to the South Dakota Association for the Education of Young Children (SDAEYC).  The SDAEYC awards celebrate those dedicated to the field of early childhood education and acknowledge dedicated professionals whose work impacts the quality of care and early education for young children in inclusive settings and their families. 

The Awards Committee is seeking nominations for four honorary awards to be given at the annual SDAEYC Conference. Evidence of philosophy and activities should be presented in the description of outstanding service and in the letter of support from peers and/or students.
