Nominations Newspaper taking nominations for youth to be honored by Pamplin Media Group
The Newberg Graphic is calling for community nominations of boys and girls ranging in age from that of an elementary school student to a high school senior to be considered for the honor of representing the newspaper as an Amazing Kid in his or her community.
The selected Amazing Kid will be recognized alongside others from communities across northwest Oregon at an Oct. 30 luncheon at Adventist Medical Center in Portland.
Speaking at the event will be Dr. Robert Pamplin Jr., owner of the Pamplin Media Group, and former Olympic figure skater and gold medal winner Scott Hamilton. This special event is being produced with the help of Adventist Medical Center, in conjunction with its annual Heroes of the Heart awards.
The Newberg Graphics staff will select the 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 and other disciplines, community service will be one of the primary criteria we will consider in choosing the Amazing Kid to represent the newspaper.
How to submit a nomination: Please specify the name of the nominee, his or her city or area of residence, and provide a narrative of no more than 500 words explaining the nominees achievements as an Amazing Kid and why he or she should be selected to represent The Newberg Graphic. Additionally, please provide a photograph of the nominee and a telephone number where we could contact the nominee or his or her parents or guardians. Nominations should be sent to The Newberg Graphic, c/o Amazing Kids, 500 E. Hancock St., Newberg, OR 97132.
The newspapers staff will choose select nominees to be featured in articles appearing in the newspaper. The nominee ultimately chosen to be the Amazing Kid representing The Newberg Graphic will additionally 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, reaching 425,000 community-minded readers.
