For the past 20 years, we have conducted a nationwide art contest for young artists who are living with kidney disease. Thirteen drawings are selected for inclusion in our annual calendar, and the cover art is selected through online voting in March, which is National Kidney Month.
We’re excited to announce that the young artist who received the greatest number of votes is Caroline Fisher of Shreveport, Louisiana. Caroline’s winning drawing, "The Southern Valley," will be the cover of the 2017 American Kidney Fund calendar!
As the cover winner, Caroline will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at our annual national gala, The Hope Affair, this fall. Calendars will be available for purchase on our website in October.
Our Calendar Kids Program provides an opportunity for pediatric kidney patients to express themselves through artwork and to receive national recognition while increasing awareness of kidney disease throughout the United States. We rely on donations from people like you to ensure patients have access to lifesaving care in their fight for survival.
