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.

About the Calendar Kids Program
For the past 20 years, the American Kidney Fund has conducted a nationwide art contest for young artists who have kidney disease. Thirteen drawings are selected for inclusion in the annual calendar, and the cover art is selected through online voting in March, which is National Kidney Month.
The 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.
