Know an amazing kid? We want to honor him or her

Submissions to our 2016 Amazing Kids contest. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 29.

This annual April special section will be distributed in Pamplin Media Group newspapers throughout the region. The Amazing Kids will be honored at a gala event hosted by Pamplin Media Group.

Last year’s section featured 25 local young people. They were some of the area’s brightest stars, from 18-year-old Lamisa Hasan of Beaverton, a first-generation Muslim American of Bengladeshi descent who was one of Sunset High School’s top students, and 17-year-old Carter Kruse of Tigard, one of the most active students on campus whose biggest project was revamping the school’s Youth Advisory Council.

If you know of an exceptional young person, please submit a brief description of why your nominee is so amazing, along with contact information for both the nominator and the nominee.

Nominees should be under 18 and there is no school affiliation requirement (homeschool, charter school, etc., is OK). However, only one nominee will be chosen each year from each geographic area covered by a PMG newspaper.

Send submissions for kids from the cities of Forest Grove, Banks, Cornelius and Gaston to Managing Editor Nancy Townsley at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
