Hawkeyes Looking for Kid Captains


The University of Iowa is looking for its next Kid Captains for the football season.

Since 2009, Kid Captain has been a partnership between University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes, featuring stories of strength, courage, and inspiration. If your child has a life-changing story, consider nominating them for the 2024 Kid Captain program.

Nominations are open until Friday, March 8, for current or former pediatric patients of UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital ages 18 and younger. Only parents and legal guardians may nominate their child.

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

Parents may nominate their child as an honorary (away game) Kid Captain. Due to sideline safety concerns, only children who will be 6 or older by November 2024 may be nominated as a home game Kid Captain.

For more information or to nominate your child, please visit uichildrens.org/kidcaptain.
