Application to Exhibit

Conference Registration

The Poverty Simulation (need minimum of 50) experience is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.

FRESH Hackathon (Limit 40)
The Focused Resilient Enterprising Sustainable Head Start Hackathon is an opportunity for programs across all states to work together in facilitating teams to find innovation solutions with the new Performance Standards. This is a great opportunity for networking!

In Partnership with:

South Dakota Head Start Association; Region VIII Head Start Association; National Centers for Program Management & Fiscal Operations; Early Childhood Development Teaching & Learning; Parent, Family & Community Engagement; Region VIII Training & Technical Assistance
