Thank you for supporting the Yes I Can! program. Every year, the Yes I Can! Award program selects its recipients from hundreds of applicants who shine as scholars, artists, athletes, community volunteers, advocates, technology experts and students who are making the successful transition from school into adult life.
We invite the Yes I Can! recipients and their families to the annual at CEC Convention & Expo, where they attend educational sessions, take a field trip in the host city and make long-lasting friendships with one another. The recipients also are recognized at the Yes I Can! Awards Ceremony and reception attended by special educators from all over the world.
For many Yes I Can! recipients, this recognition is a this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. One of 2013 recipients told her teacher that she had always wanted to be famous. “Now I am,” she said after receiving her Yes I Can! Award.
