IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The Hawkeye football season may be months away but already some are preparing. The University of Iowa Children's Hospital is accepting nominations for this year's Kid Captain program.

Parents and guardians of current and former pediatric patients at the hospital can nominate their child to be a Kid Captain for the 2015 football season.

Kid Captains get a special jersey and behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium.

This is the seventh year for the Kid Captain program, a partnership between the hospital and football team.

Children must be 6 or older  by December 2015 in order to be a home game Kid Captain but kids of any age can be an away game Kid Captain.

Nominations must be submitted by March 24.
