“The mission of Children’s Week Florida™ is to educate and elevate the diverse needs of Florida’s children and youth for our state leaders, while acknowledging their achievements. Through advocacy events and outreach efforts, this year-round initiative, seeks to strengthen our state’s families and communities.
Children’s Week Florida™ is the largest event held in the state that celebrates and honors its commitment to children, youth, and advocates. We are proud to continue the legendary event that began more than 20 years ago during the tenure of Governor Lawton Chiles.
Throughout the week, Children’s Week Florida™ volunteers, partners, and advocates come together to provide a platform delivering the message that every child should be healthy, ready to learn, and able to achieve their full potential.”
If you’re a school or center and would like to submit decorated hands, please bring them to ELCFV by January 13th so that we can get them mailed to the Capitol!
