The Lake Oswego Review is seeking two high school columnists from Lake Oswego and one columnist from Riverdale High School for the 2006-2007 school year.
Columnists from Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high schools will write columns once every two weeks. Columnists from Riverdale will write once a month. All applicants must be current students.
Columnists are expected to generate original column ideas and adhere to strict deadlines. Columnists should use their writing to provide a window into the high schools, offering insight into what is going on in the schools as well as student perspective on local and national events. Columnists are not paid. They are expected to love writing and have a distinct point of view to express.
To apply, send your name, year in school, which school you are attending, address, telephone number and a short biography to the Review.
Please also submit a sample column (about 550 words) on a subject or issue of your choice as well as a list of two other ideas you could foresee writing about in the future. In-person interviews for selected applicants will be held in August.
Applications can also be sent via e-mail. Applications must be received by August 18.
