Meet the 2020 Oren Miller Dad 2.0 Scholarship Recipients

By Designerdaddy @DesignerDaddy

It's old home week for me, in a couple of ways. Thursday marks the start of Dad 2.0 Summit - an annual conference where marketers, social media leaders, and blogging parents connect to discuss the changing voice and perception of modern fatherhood. My 7th time attending, this year the Summit is on my home turf in Washington DC!

While I have the added perk of not paying for airfare, my primary excitement is to reconnect with these parents/writers/videographers/photographers/podcasters that have truly become dear friends. While I always come away educated, challenged and inspired, the relationships are what keeps me coming back. And as a "seasoned" attendee, I'm compelled to pay it forward, making the newer folks feel welcome.

2020 is Dad 2.0's 9th Summit, and the 6th year awarding scholarships to some of the aforementioned newbies. And as chairman of the Oren Miller Dad 2.0 Scholarship, I'm once again honored to introduce this year's recipients.

Spend a few moments reading about these six dads. They are biological dads, adoptive dads and stepdads, with 18 kids between them. They find inspiration in Uncle Phil, Yoda and Gandalf; refreshment from craft beer, scotch and triple espressos. Check out some of their work, follow them on social media, chat them up in person at the Summit - and make sure they feel the depth and richness of this awesome community.
