“This unique program provides an opportunity for Colorado’s youth to grow from experiences in a way that embraces what is special about our state – creative spirit, exploration, natural beauty. Happy trails to all, until we meet again!” – Former Governor, John Hickenlooper

Colorado Kids Create, Inc. is a 501 (c3) endorsed by The Colorado Education Association.  Students are provided the opportunity to illustrate books/e-books about Colorado and The West via the annual contest. The books are then sold with 100% of the profits going back to schools. This year, thanks to the Loveland Fine Art Invitational, all students whose artwork is chosen to be in a book, will receive a complimentary copy. Individual Colorado teachers who qualify, may apply to receive art supplies from the Philip Steele Foundation at www.steelefoundation.org.
