August 24, 2018 GMT

Do you know an Amazing Kid? Each fall, The Citizens’ Voice puts together the Amazing Kids special section to showcase the talented youth in Northeast Pennsylvania. The ideal candidate is a smart, dedicated and inspiring child who is accomplished beyond his or her years and exhibits a drive to excel. The children we have profiled in past years have overcome obstacles and devoted their time and talents to helping others. They are artists, academics, volunteers and others whose accomplishments sometimes skirt the spotlight but are worthy of recognition and praise. Candidates must be 17 years old or younger (or 18 but still in high school through the 2018-2019 school year). To nominate a child for the Amazing Kids special section, email citydesk@citizensvoice.com or call 570-821-2056. Nominations are due by Sept. 14. Nominations should include the following information: Child’s full name, age, school, grade and hometown. Explanation of what makes the child an ideal candidate for the Amazing Kids section. Contact information for the person submitting the nomination. This information will be used to verify the nomination and for follow-up questions regarding the nomination. — STAFF REPORT
