Kids Helping Kids: Fighting Cancer with Knowledge
Coco Creates is an art contest created by The Coco Foundation. The contest is intended for any student in grades 1-8 interested in creatively building awareness in ways children can help and support other children suffering from cancer. The contest is a competition to challenge students artistically and academically. All participating students will have their work shown off on The Coco Foundation website and Facebook page.
