Submissions were voted on by the public.

The money will go toward sending more campers to Camp Millennium, a summer camp for kids impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

Blyth has volunteered at the camp for the past two summers, and applied for the grant hoping to earn $5,000, which would have sponsored five kids at camp.

When it was announced that Bylth took second in the competition, winning the $3,000, an anonymous donor made up the difference by donating $2,000 to Bylth's charity, the LtP Foundation, which supports Camp Millennium and other organizations supporting children affected by cancer. COURTESY PHOTO: WEST LINN POLICE - Campers from Camp Millenium, which is where the $3,000 will go, joined Blyth to accept the check. Blyth and the campers also got a visit from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue.
