The deadline for submitting artwork for the 2017 Calendar Kids Art Contest has passed. Please check back soon to see who this year's winner is.
Each year we get a glimpse into the boundless hope and resilience of young patients when they submit their original artwork for our annual Calendar Kids Art Contest.
This nationwide contest is an opportunity for children and teens, up to age 16, who are living with kidney disease to share their artistic talents with the nation. The winner of the contest gets to have his or her artwork featured on the cover of AKF’s 2018 annual calendar, as well as a trip to Washington, DC, to attend and be honored at AKF’s annual gala, The Hope Affair.
The winning pictures will be featured in AKF’s 2018 calendar. All submissions will be available for viewing and voting starting in March 2017, which is Kidney Month.
