We’re excited to announce that the young artist who received the greatest number of votes is Kaylee Clabough, 8, from Hartselle, Alabama. Kaylee’s winning drawing, "The Life Saver," received more than 500 votes.
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.

Learn About Our 2015 Cover Art Winner
Madison Gordon, 18, from Goldbar, Wash., calls her winning entry “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.
