Enter the Amazing Kids search in Tigard, Tualatin
Do you know a young person on Portland's Westside 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 for our annual Amazing Kids awards!
Each year, The Times chooses at least one outstanding youth from both Tigard and Tualatin and features them in a special magazine all about the work being done by Portland-area youth to make the world a better place.
The magazine will be inserted here and distributed in 20 other Pamplin Media Group newspapers in May, reaching more than 425,000 readers.
The deadline for nominations is March 9.
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 to be The Times' Amazing Kids 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 Tigard, Tualatin, Metzger or Durham.
The Sherwood Gazette and the Regal Courier, sister papers of The Times, are also searching for nominees from Sherwood, King City and Bull Mountain to sponsor as Amazing Kids. Nominees from those communities are welcome.
