Know a Cool Kid Under 10? Let Us Know!

10 Under 10 nominations are now open

Chippewa Valley Family is looking for passionate youngsters to include in the special “10 Under 10” feature in our July/August issue.

In partnership with Smiles in Motion and Kristo Orthodontics, Chippewa Valley Family will feature 10 outstanding local kids who are 10 years old or younger (think 40 under 40, but, you know, way more youthful). In order to find these nifty kiddos, we’re seeking nominations from our readers.

We’re looking for diverse nominees in terms of age, ability, interests, culture, and favorite activities. Chippewa Valley Family editors will review the nominees to select a group of kids who represent our diverse community and the varied interests of local children.

It’s important to note that lots of truly great kids won’t be selected. The 10 people to be featured aren’t the “winners,” they’re simply a band of kids who demonstrate some of what’s great about growing up in this area. With their parents’ approval, the 10 kids featured will be photographed and interviewed for the July/August issue of Chippewa Valley Family in both print and online.

To nominate a cool kid, head over to and click on the "NOMINATE" link at the top, before May 24, 2019.
