Announcing the winner of the Inaugural VAEE Frank Fisher Scholarship: Tracy Young
Tracy will receive $500 towards the costs of attending and presenting “Nature by Default in Early Childhood Education” at AAEE 2014 conference and research symposium in Hobart from November 1st.
The judges valued Tracy’s intent to open a space for critical reflection on whether the 'default paradigm' of children playing in nature is 'enough'. We appreciate these kinds of on-going challenges to emerging 'standards' in environmental education. Challenges which are valuable in providing us with the kinds of insights and foundations for sustainable lives and communities.
