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.
Information on the Oregon Common Core Standards can be found at:
