Thumbs Up

Underwriter sought for Thumbs Up

We started this youth achievement page, Thumbs Up, four years ago. You tell us often that you love it. We report about school-age kids and their successes in Scouts, spelling bees, science contests, dance, music, volunteering and other activities.

However, we've lost underwriting support, and the page is in jeopardy. If you are interested in underwriting Thumbs Up, please contact The N&O's development director, Tonya Taylor, at
