Paper seeks teens who love to write
Youth Board members needed for 08-09 school year
The Lake Oswego Review and West Linn Tidings are looking for 10-12 teenagers with fresh ideas to sit on the Youth Board.
Students will advise the newspapers on interesting topics and also pursue ideas on their own. All students on the board will be given opportunities to write for the paper and see their work published. Topics can include sports, music, fashion, movies, politics and more.
We are looking for original thinkers who love to write.
Students interested in applying to sit on the Youth Board must be willing to attend meetings once a month, be able to meet regular deadlines and show a strong interest in writing.
Students applying for the positions must live in the Lake Oswego or Dunthorpe and be between the ages of 14 and 18.
To apply, students should submit a short biography (remember to have fun with this) or a writing sample. Include three topics you might be interested in writing about, your name, age, the school you attend, your address, phone number and any other information you think is relevant.
Finalists will be contacted for an interview.
For more information call 503-635-8811 ext. 103.
Applications must be received by Friday, August 15.
