Parents and guardians of current or former pediatric patients of University of Iowa Children’s Hospital are invited to nominate their child as a Kid Captain for the Hawkeyes’ 2014 football season. Nominations will be accepted through April 9.

Now in its sixth year, the Kid Captain program is a partnership between UI Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor these pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories.

All Kid Captains will receive a commemorative jersey, special recognition from UI Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes, and an invitation to a special behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium in August.

Due to sideline safety concerns, only children who will be 8 or older by December 2014 may be nominated as a home game Kid Captain. Children of any age may be nominated as an honorary (away game) Kid Captain.

For more information or to nominate your child, visit the UI Children's Hospital Kid Captain website.
