CHS seeks senior board volunteers

Camas High School is preparing for its annual senior board presentations and looking for volunteers to sit on the panel of judges.

This experience is a tradition for all CHS seniors and students to have a chance to showcase their leadership, learning, passions, decisions and hopes for their future.

This year’s projects bring a wide variety of topics and include examples like job-shadowing at an advertising agency, interning at OHSU, creating a musical, and apprenticing as an electrician.

Panel judges, who evaluate a student’s readiness and provide helpful feedback, will have a list of standard questions and an evaluation sheet for each student.

The judges are encouraged to note comments and ask specific questions related to the presentation.

Each presentation is between 8 to 10 minutes in length, and each session of presentations runs for approximately three hours.

Sessions will be held from 7:30 to 10:15 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday, June 6-8, and from 8 to 11 a.m., Saturday, June 10.
