The International Child Art Foundation has announced the launch of the #MyFavoriteSport campaign, aimed at helping to provide young people an opportunity for inclusion in the Paris Olympics.

By facilitating a campaign to create artwork of their favorite Olympic sports, the ICAF aims to foster the Olympic values of excellence, respect, and friendship.

Students aged 14 to 20 will upload and share their artwork with family and friends to get their votes. Such "Create & Share" and "View & Vote" activities can go viral, engaging millions. The gold, silver, and bronze winners will be the young artists who garner the most votes.

ICAF has served American children as their national arts organization and the world's children as their global arts organization since 1997. It employs the power of the arts to cultivate creativity and grow mutual empathy in a world lacking these key attributes that make us human.

An identity development leader, ICAF inspires young people to embrace the "Artist-Athlete Ideal" of the creative mind and healthy body (mente sana in corpo sano). This new identity awakens the dormant inner artist or the slumbering inner athlete for holistic development.
