Entering its 6th year, Amazing Kids is an award unlike any other. Honorees are chosen not necessarily for their academic or athletic prowess but for their commitment to service and the positive impacts they have made on the Oregon communities around them. Each Pamplin Media Group newspaper chose from hundreds of nominations for the child that would represent their community.
The Pamplin Media Group's Amazing Kids event will take place at the end of April and be held at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Each Amazing Kid will be recognized publically at this event, and their individual story will be shared in a special section. Last year's section was a massive 64 pages and included 28 amazing stories about how each made a difference in the lives of others.
