2022 Why I Love America Calendar Contest

We are excited to announce the twentieth annual “Why I Love America” calendar contest.  While originally created as a way for children to express themselves through art after the events of 9/11, the contest continues to provide students with an opportunity to reflect upon the freedoms and responsibilities we have as citizens. 

The contest is open to all Kenton County students grades K-12.  A panel of judges will select 26 original works (one winner and one honorable mention from each grade) to be made into a calendar for 2022.  All participating students will receive a complimentary calendar, and winners and honorable mentions will be honored at a special ceremony in December.   The calendars are also available to the public, with proceeds to benefit the Northern Kentucky 9/11 Memorial.

The contest deadline is Tuesday Sept. 28, 2021
