Bloch Distinguished Career Award
The Bloch Distinguished Career Award is an annual award given to a scholar researcher who, as an active participant in RECE, has made significant and sustained contributions to reconceptualizing early childhood research, practice, and/or theory at local, national, and/or international levels. The purpose of the award is twofold: to honor scholars whose work has informed and influenced critical inquiry in early childhood education and to acknowledge significant contributions to work of RECE in the larger context of educational research, practice, and theory.
