The 3rd Arts Olympiad winners and their parents and teachers from 25 states in the U.S. and from 32 countries worldwide were joined by an international group of nearly 200 talented young musicians, dancers, and performers. Prominent educators held 67 workshops and activities to provide a unique 21st century learning experience to festival attendees. Children worked together on murals to honor creative leaders, and ICAF Youth Board members presented “World Children’s Awards” to innovative companies and global leaders.
