Oregon’s Kitchen Table creates public engagement opportunities to allow Oregonians to weigh in on policy questions posed by elected officials and public managers. Oregon’s Kitchen Table has been used at the state, local and regional levels to gather feedback from a wide variety of Oregonians on a range of topics, including state budgeting priorities, county budgeting, kindergarten readiness, school boundaries, regional economic development priorities, and values and beliefs.

Hatfield Futures Project

The Hatfield Futures Project is a new opportunity from Portland State University for youth to shape the future on important issues like climate change, housing, natural resources, incarceration & rehabilitation.

In April 2023, teams of 3-5 students will have the opportunity to present their proposals to local legislators, policy-makers, faculty, and community leaders at PSU. All teams will receive hotel and travel accommodation, as well as media coverage to amplify their voices. Winning teams will receive an additional $1000 prize.

Interested high school students can apply through December 16th, 2022.
