Top Kid On The Beach & Super Senior

Multi-Day Event (Wednesday through Saturday) Plan to join in the fun!

There are always several special folks on the beach who spend a great deal of time and energy at WSIKF doing things to attract kids to the sport of kiting. This award is to acknowledge their efforts. Ballots will be available Wednesday afternoon through Saturday at the AKA table near the First Aide Tent.


Ballots are available Wednesday morning at the Kids’ Day Registration Table and Wednesday afternoon through Saturday at the AKA Headquarters next to the Activities Tent.

Please nominate people you see on the beach who you feel should receive this award in each category: TOP KID ON THE BEACH (under 60) & SUPER SENIOR (60+)

Be sure to also fill in WHY you think the person you nominate should receive this award. All nomination forms will eventually be passed on to the named people so that they know that their efforts are appreciated and they will be encouraged to do it again next year!

These awards will be based BOTH on the written nominations and on awards made for efforts in the Kids’ Day events on Wednesday. TOP KID ON THE BEACH and SUPER SENIOR awards will be announced and honored at the World Kite Museum Awards on Saturday night.

Ballots must be cast by 4:30 pm on Saturday.
