State Leadership Conference Completed

Educators Rising Alaska had over 80 student particpants at the March Conference from thirteen districts and 23 communities from across the state. This year we also offered a Collegiate category to a student from UAS. Thirteen first place finishers will be offered financial assistance for their travels to Nationals in June.

Speakers and noted guests included UA President Jim Johnsen, AK Teacher of the Year Amy Gallaway, Deputy Commissioner of Education Karen Melin, Provost Anupma Prakash, Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs & Athletics Keith Champagne, Dean of the UA College of Education, Steve Atwater, Dean of the College of CNSM Kinchel Doerner, PAVVA (an Iñupiak dance troupe), and past student officers.

This conclusion of the Leadership Conference was first livestreamed, and is now available to watch on UAF's media page.

2020 National Conference Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, National EdRising has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Conference and has also made the decision to not hold a virtual conference.

We are in discussions with western states to hold a virtual regional conference, however, the possibility is remote. Please refer back here or our social media to receive updates.
