Nominate your 'Amazing Kid'
The Portland Tribune is looking for nominations of boys and girls from elementary school to a high school age to be honored as an Amazing Kid in his or her community. The selected Portland Amazing Kid will be recognized with other Amazing Kids from communities across Northwest Oregon at a luncheon at Adventist Medical Center in Portland on Thursday, Oct. 30.
The event is being produced with the help of Adventist Medical Center, in conjunction with its annual Heroes of the Heart awards.
The Tribunes staff will select the Amazing Kid based on the nominees demonstrated efforts to improve 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 nominate an Amazing Kid, tell us the name of the young person, where he or she lives, and tell us in 500 words why the young person deserves to be honored as an Amazing Kid. Please include a photograph of the young person and a telephone number where we could contact the nominee or his or her parents or guardians.
Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write Amazing Kids in the emails subject line.
The Amazing Kid chosen to represent Portland will be the focus of a feature story to be published in a special section distributed in 20 Pamplin Media Group newspapers, reaching 425,000 community-minded readers.
