We look forward to having your students join us for their first conference as middle schoolers for a unique experience with presentations by and for

middle level students!

Registration begins next month!

Our Face to Face Conference IS BACK!

Beyond Bullying:

Creating Communities of Equity & Respect

VAMLE 2023

Celebrating Our 10th Annual Student


on March 14th at

Champlain College

Champlain College requires the following as a condition of attending the conference on their campus: “Champlain policy requires that all event guests must show proof that they are up to date with COVID-19 vaccines prior or at check in.” Attending students must therefore provide their designated school contact with evidence of their COVID vaccinations to attend the conference. For more information, see Champlain College’s following COVID-19 policies. CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE COVID RIDER.docx

The VAMLE Executive Board is seeking student presenters (your students) to share their exciting and innovative programs and activities 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.

Registration forms and information will be available on this website in October.
