OATAG awards one outstanding Oregon student the OATAG Young Scholars Award. The OATAG Young Scholars Award is designed to recognize excellence in young children. The award, which includes a certificate and up to a $500 scholarship for a summer program, is awarded each school year. Potential award recipients are students in grades 4 through 8 who have achieved excellence in one of the following areas of endeavor: leadership, visual/performing arts, or academic achievement. A student may be recommended by a teacher, parent, or civic/religious leader.
Something big is happening in education in Oregon, something that all parents will want to know about - the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These newly adopted standards in English Language Arts and Math are important for your student's success.
