Our Governor plays a critical role in building a bright
future for our state, and the stakes are high for kids as
Oregon’s gubernatorial race heats up. That’s why United
for Kids, with KOIN TV and Pamplin Media, is hosting a
candidate forum about children’s issues, with kids and
youth asking the questions!
United for Kids is a program of Children First for Oregon
Youth Voice in the 2018 Race for Oregon Governor
Children First for Oregon is gathering short video clips of children and youth answering a few key questions. Send us
a 10-30 second video response to one or two of the below questions and you could be featured in the televised Forum
on October 2nd.
Your video may be used during the televised Gubernatorial Forum on October 2nd and/or in promotion of the forum
on KOIN television, the CFFO website and digital media, and/or in KOIN and Pamplin digital promotion.
