It may be too soon to get together, but we are excited to BLOOM TOGETHER!  

This year's Festival of Flowers will be a month long celebration and virtual fundraising event that includes virtual workshops for all ages, a community art exhibit in downtown Iowa City, flowers delivered to right to your doorstep,

and a chance to win fabulous prizes.


Our celebration kicks off on May 1st but to help us prepare for the festivities, we need your help "planting" a flower garden!  Between now and April 24th, we invite YOU to participate in UAY's Community Garden Art Exhibit by submitting a piece of floral artwork.  Your flower will be displayed along with many other flowers in the windows of the Swaim Youth Center at 355 Iowa Avenue in downtown Iowa City.  Art work can be submitted on 5x7 cards and can be mailed to United Action for Youth, PO Box 892, Iowa City, IA 52244.  Prizes will be given to the 1st, 20th, 50th, 75th, 110th and 150th flowers we receive!  For full directions and how to submit your flower, click the PDF icon below!
