Announcing Family Programming’s Big New Event!

GODZILLA-TOWN
“The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and not the other way around.”

Friday night of Anime Iowa, children ages 4-12 are encouraged to come and bring out their inner “Kaiju” (monster) to completely annihilate a small cardboard city!
While the destruction is left up to our smaller Kaiju’s of Anime Iowa, we have an art contest that is open to all ages! Break out your creativity and submit a cardboard building to us for a chance to win some “monstrous” prizes! 
Crayons, sharpies, paint, any medium, multiple entries is fine as well. Please no sharp attachments to the boxes however. (We’d hate to puncture our little kaiju’s claws)
There will be both a children’s division and adults division for best cardboard structures, 1st and 2nd place in each. The winners will also have their box-buildings displayed in the art show for the duration of the weekend for all to see!
If interested in participating in this contest, all box buildings must be dropped off to the Family Programming room by 5pm on Friday. You may also bring it to the convention flat if you wish for traveling purposes, as we will have tape on hand to re-set up boxes.
Any questions may be emailed to family@animeiowa.com or posted to the forum thread for Family Programming.
We hope to see your creativity and little ones for Godzilla-town at Anime Iowa!

Family Programming Updates

Child Rate for Registration

Did you know that a child badge has a lower rate this year?  That’s right!  Whether pre-reg or at the convention, a child badge is only $35 for ages 6-12.

 

Spot the Ninja

Spot the Ninja is a hotel-wide activity that Family Programming will be hosting this year.  We will have small decals of ninjas up around the hotel.  Prizes will be given out to families who can spot the ninjas! Prize levels will depend on the number of ninja decals they find.  Others are welcome to participate as well and will receive a sticker for their participation.
