Do you know an Amazing Kid?
The Review is accepting nominations now for boys and girls who represent the best of Lake Oswego
Know a stand-out Lake Oswego kid who deserves kudos? Well, weve got just the thing for you.
The Review is now accepting nominations for boys and girls from elementary school students to high school seniors to represent Lake Oswego as our communitys Amazing Kid in a new contest sponsored by the Pamplin Media Group.
Lake Oswegos Amazing Kid will be recognized alongside other Amazing Kids from communities across northwest Oregon at an Oct. 30 luncheon at Adventist Medical Center in Portland. Dr. Robert Pamplin Jr., owner of Pamplin Media Group, and former Olympic figure skater and gold-medal winner Scott Hamilton will speak at the event, which is being produced with the help of Adventist Medical Center in conjunction with its annual Heroes of the Heart awards.
In addition, Lake Oswegos Amazing Kid will be the focus of a feature story that will be published in a special section distributed in 20 Pamplin Media Group newspapers throughout northwest Oregon (including The Review), reaching 425,000 community-minded readers.
The Review staff will also select several additional nominees to be featured in articles appearing in just this newspaper.
The Review staff will select our Amazing Kid based on the nominees demonstrated efforts toward improving his or her community. While the nominee may be accomplished in academic studies, sports, dance, music or other disciplines, community service will be one of the primary criteria we will consider in choosing Lake Oswegos Amazing Kid.
