Do you know an Amazing Kid?
Do you know a young person who goes above and beyond? A student who puts the needs of others before themselves, or someone who has overcome hardship but still perseveres to make a difference in their community?
Nominate them as one of our 2021 Amazing Kids honorees!
Each year, Pamplin Media Group chooses outstanding youths from our various newspaper markets across the state and features them in a special section that honors local students for the work they do to make our communities a better place to live.
Last year, Pamplin Media Group honored 28 Amazing Kids in its 2020 section. Now, it's time to do it again.
The Amazing Kids special section will be inserted into all 20 Pamplin Media Group weekly newspapers the week of May 24. It also will be shared online and through our weekly email newsletter, collectively reaching more than 1.2 million readers. So yes, being named as one Pamplin Media Group's Amazing Kids is a big deal.
The deadline for nominations is March 21.
While the nominee may be skilled in academic studies, sports, dance, music or other disciplines, community service will be one of the primary criteria we'll consider.
Nominees can be enrolled as a student at a private, public or charter school, or be home-schooled, but they must be in elementary, middle or high school and they must live in the local area.
