Join us for the 2016 UEA Convention & Education Exposition October 20-21

Just announced: The 2016 UEA Convention will feature award-winning educator Erin Gruwell as a keynote speaker. Gruwell was the inspiration for the 2007 movie Freedom Writers, which starred Oscar winner Hilary Swank as Gruwell.

The UEA Convention & Education Exposition is Utah’s premier education event. The UEA has been providing teacher training at its annual Convention for more than 100 years. Recent years have included activities for kids, parents and anyone interested in public education.

The 2016 UEA Convention & Education Exposition will be held Thursday and Friday, Oct. 20-21, at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy.


The 2015 UEA Convention

The 2015 UEA Convention & Education Exposition delivered much more than just professional development for educators. Parents discovered new ways to engage their children in education. Administrators and policymakers discussed local, state and national education issues. Kids experienced hands-on science, math, art and reading activities.

“Education is such a critical issue in our state and across the nation,” said UEA President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh. “At the UEA Convention, we want to provide a place where educators can hone their teaching skills, families can explore new learning opportunities, and the entire community can come together to share ideas and celebrate public education in Utah.”
