Submit your artwork for SickKids’ 2024 Feeding Tube Awareness Week Art Showcase

Where words fail, art speaks!

This year, in honour of Feeding Tube Awareness Week (Feb. 5 to 9), SickKids’ G Tube Feeding Program team is hosting an art showcase to celebrate the talent and strength of families of children with feeding tubes.

All names who have submitted artwork will be entered into a draw to win a Specialty Food Shop gift card! There will be three winners selected to each win a gift card valued at $100.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2024.

Art submissions can be any medium of choice: paintings, drawings, poems, songs...families are encouraged to get creative and show off their talents!

Anyone connected to a SickKids tubie family is welcome to submit artwork — submissions can come from patients, parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins or friends.

The theme for this showcase is spotlighting the uniqueness and strength of the families and children/youth dependent upon tube feeding.

Please submit artwork to by Feb. 1 at 11:59 p.m.

See examples of previous submissions from last year’s showcase!

An Amazing Tubie

An Amazing Tubie
Tubie sticks on my tummy through the day and every night.
It happens sometimes in life.
Hang on to give
opportunity to live
Go anywhere and everywhere.
Play outside, play inside
it can be swim, swing and slide.
Help me to grow,
to be stronger that I can be.
I love my Tubie!
