Conference on the Young Years Call for Presentation Proposals

The Office of Childhood is now accepting presentation proposals for the Conference on the Young Years (CYY) 2025. The conference dates are March 6-8, 2025, at Tan Tar A Conference Center in Osage Beach, MO.

Our goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to discuss appropriate practices, share ideas, and receive developmental information on early childhood (Birth-3rd grade). All sessions should be one hour in length.

If selected the lead presenter and one co-presenter will receive complimentary registration. All other costs, including lodging, will be at the presenter’s expense. The co-presenter must be listed on the proposal at the time of submission.

Please note that selling or promoting materials during the presentation is strictly prohibited.  Presenters may rent a booth space in the exhibit hall for this purpose. 

The deadline to submit a proposal is July 1, 2024. Fill out the electronic survey here to submit a proposal.
