Youth Program Update

We at Kankakee Valley REMC believe the future of our community is our youth so we think our time and money is well-spent providing youth programs.  However, the current state of the pandemic prevents us from safely offering Page Day this month and Youth Tour and Touchstone Energy Camp this summer.  There are too many uncertainties for us to be able to ensure each student has a safe and worthwhile experience.  

Youth programs that we look forward to continuing safely in 2021 include the Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest and Youth Power and Hope Awards.  

Indiana k-12 students are invited to enter the Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest for a chance to illustrate an award-winning wall calendar.  Each year, 13 first-place winners and honorable mention winners will have their artwork featured in the calendar - and will receive cash prizes.  Winners will have their artwork displayed at the annual Hoosier Salon exhibition.  

The Youth Power and Hope Awards program honors Indiana students in fifth through eighth grades who are leaders in their communities.  Five winners are selected each year and are featured in Indiana Connection magazine.  The 2021 entry form will be available in June.
