Kids Day 2015 The Swarm

The Kid Captain program is a partnership that began in 2009 between University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor our pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories.

Nominations for the 2016 Kid Captain program are now closed. The 2016 Kid Captains will be announced in August.

To date, 95 Kid Captains from seven states and 67 cities have participated in the Kid Captain program.
