About the Calendar Kids Program
For the past 18 years, the American Kidney Fund has conducted a nationwide art contest for young artists up to 18 years old who have kidney disease. Thirteen drawings are selected for inclusion in the annual calendar, and the cover artist is selected through online voting. The program provides an opportunity for pediatric patients to express themselves through artwork and to receive national recognition while increasing awareness of kidney disease throughout the United States. The Calendar Kids Program is supported by an educational donation provided by Amgen.
