The winner of each category will receive $100 from the city and then be submitted into the statewide competition. 
First place statewide winning students in each of the three categories will win $500.  These students will receive their prizes at the awards luncheon held during the Oregon Mayors Association’s Summer Conference in Hood River at the Best Western Plus, August 10-12, 2023. Winners will be contacted in June for travel arrangements.
