Annual Student Conference

We at VAMLE are excited to announce that we have received an overwhelming response from middle level schools across Vermont to attend our 10th annual student conference on Tuesday, March 14th at Champlain College. The interest has been so intense that registrations have caused an unexpected end point: Champlain College has no more physical capacity for anymore bodies at the facilities. Therefore, as of March 2nd, no more new registrations are being accepted. 

Those schools that have already received confirmation with an email message from VAMLE's Executive Director, Dave F. Brown, are encouraged to submit attendees' names (of both students and teachers) and their session choices within the next five days (by March 9th at the latest, please). Invoices are being generated and will be issued as soon as we receive your school's list of attendees and their session choices.

If you have any questions, please email us at For those who were not able to register due to this unexpected circumstance, we are sorry that Champlain College ran out of space, and sincerely hope that you'll consider joining next year!

VAMLE 2023 

Celebrating Our 10th Annual Student Conference 

on March 14th at

Champlain College 

The VAMLE Executive Board is seeking student presenters (your students) to share their exciting and innovative programs and activities that introduce or advance practices promoting equity and inclusion with fellow Vermont middle grades students at our March 2023 student conference at Champlain College. 

Naturally, we’re also excited to have your students attend who aren’t presenting to learn more about issues of racial, gender, and social equity and to prevent bullying. What a valuable time to attend a conference face-to-face following the past two and a half years!

You may consider using your school’s ESSER funds for sending students to attend. Six-person teams can attend for a mere $325 as VAMLE member schools ($400 for non-member schools). Other additional students attend for $75 each. We hope that you’ll consider using your district’s ESSER funds for this essential and unique student conference. Some schools send entire classrooms to the conference.
