Attention Kentites: Nominate a 'Whiz Kid' Today
Kent Patch wants to recognize the amazing kids in town, and we need your help — and nominations — to do the job
Know a child who goes above and beyond to help those in need? How about a student who's constantly setting the bar higher day by day? Or maybe a youngster who's endured an amazing journey already in life?
Kent Patch is looking for parents, schools and organizations to nominate a valedictorian, athlete, school club member and any other outstanding youngster for our new weekly feature, Whiz Kid.
Whether they're a math whiz, a soccer whiz, a fundraiser whiz or anything in between, we want your nominations.
We want to stress that this is not a competition. We will be featuring a Kent Whiz Kid each week, so the more the merrier!
Nominations should be submitted by e-mailing editor Matt Fredmonsky at Matt.Fredmonsky@patch.com. Nominations should include the following information about the child:
- Outstanding Deed
- Key to Awesomeness
We will send our nominees some contact info, and once selected we will have this week's Whiz Kid meet with one of our writers for a short interview to see what makes them so great. Let the nominations begin!
