ROGUE RIVER, Ore. — The ABC Network and “First Book” reached across the country last month to find schools in need of new books through the “Be Inspired” campaign. NewsWatch 12 asked the community to participate by nominating schools and programs deserving of new books for kids.
Southern Oregon entered more nominations than any other part of the country and two local schools received the most nominations of any in the entire nation. In fact, Rogue River Elementary School received the most nominations overall. Shady Cove Elementary came in a close second.
