As the cover winner, Kaylee will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at the American Kidney Fund’s annual national gala, The Hope Affair, this fall. All 13 children who were named finalists in the contest will have their artwork published in our 2016 calendar and will receive a gift card. Calendars will be available for purchase on the American Kidney Fund website in October.
We commend all of the children who entered the Calendar Kids Art Contest for facing kidney disease with courage and optimism.
More than 4,200 people voted to select the cover art for the American Kidney Fund’s 2015 calendar from among the 13 talented winners of this year’s Calendar Kids Art Contest. Thank you to everyone who voted!
Madison Gordon, 18, from Goldbar, Wash., received the most votes for her entry, which she calls “Love Life.” Her drawing was inspired on a particularly tough day at dialysis; she was surprised to see her dialysis tubing had formed itself into the shape of a heart.
Congratulations to Madison, who was an honored guest at the American Kidney Fund’s annual gala, The Hope Affair, in Washington, D.C., in October 2014.
And congratulations to the other winners of the Calendar Kids Art Contest, whose work appears throughout our 2015 calendar.
The Calendar Kids Program is partially supported by an educational grant provided by Amgen.
