The Pennsylvania Association for the Education of Young Children recognizes the critical role advocacy plays in high quality early learning settings and celebrates those who speak on behalf of Pennsylvania’s children. As the voice for early care and learning, community advocates are an invaluable component to assuring all Pennsylvania’s children get the start that they deserve in school and in life.

The VOICE for Children Award is the only statewide award in Pennsylvania recognizing the grassroots leaders whose work impacts the quality of care for young children in diverse settings.  Now in its eighth year, the VOICE Award celebrates not only individual award recipients, but the early childhood profession.

We are honored to celebrate the accomplishments of four professionals who have demonstrated outstanding dedication and commitment to advocating for high quality early learning opportunities in Pennsylvania.
