Arts and Poetry Contest – And the Winners Are!

TRAG was asked by Oregon City Parks and Rec to help support an amazing project for young Artists and Poets.  The contest was divided into two age groups 11-13 and 14-16. Each group was asked to either write a poem or create a piece of art inspired by Oregon City’s history. Parks and Rec received a total of 20 submissions, and they were truly amazing.
