Welcome Young Artists!

Submit your child’s artwork now!

At Save the Cord Foundation, we believe that art is key to communicating our message.  Art connects people, opens our minds and prompts conversation. That is the goal of Save the Cord Foundation’s Young Artists Program–to connect, open minds and start conversation.

Save the Cord Foundation developed the Young Artist Program in an effort to directly reach young families and educate them about the life-saving medical benefits of saving a child’s umbilical cord blood at birth. Cord blood is being used today to treat 80+ different diseases including sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy and leukemia. Yet, today over 95% of cord blood is discarded as medical waste!  It is vital that expecting parents learn about the life-saving uses of cord blood and are given an opportunity to either donate their child’s cord blood or save it privately (Learn more about cord blood here).

The theme for the Young Artists Program is CREATE, GIVE, SHARE.

It is FREE to participate in the Young Artists Program at Save the Cord Foundation. Regardless of where you live in the world, if you are between the ages of 2 and 8 years old you are welcome to participate! ALL OF THE ARTWORK WE RECEIVE WILL BE FEATURED in our online gallery and distributed to our large network of friends and supporters.  Your work will also be featured in our SPECIAL EDITION YOUNG ARTISTS book!

ENTRY DEADLINE (for book):  Rolling submission; entries collected for book on October 1st of each year
