The Kiwanis Club of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, doesn’t just do a pancake breakfast – it’s a festival. And for 45 of the festival’s 69 years, it’s been a place where children perform and show their art. That’s because the club discovered that kids benefit from an opportunity to publicly display their talents to a wide audience. The event has evolved into one of the largest and oldest juried talent shows in Louisiana. Additionally, the club raises nearly $25,000 each year from the festival for service projects. This project was awarded the bronze prize at the 2019 Kiwanis International Signature Project Contest.
