Do you know an Amazing Kid?

The Outlook, Sandy Post and Estacada News, along with our partner newspapers, are seeking submissions for our 2016 Amazing Kids contest.

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

Last year’s section featured 25 local young people. They were some of the area’s brightest stars — Corbett High School’s Josh Layton, who shared his talents in a variety of school arenas, as well as community volunteering; and Estacada High School’s Melissa Nuno, a highly regarded school leader and member of the school’s media team — from all of our communities.

If you know of an exceptional young person, we would like to hear about them. Please submit a brief description of why your nominee is so amazing, along with contact information for both you and the student you are recommending. Nominees should be under the age of 18 and no individual school affiliation is required (homeschool, charter school, etc., is OK). Only one nominee will be chosen annually from each geographic area covered by a PMG newspaper. Deadline for submissions is Monday, Feb. 29.
