The school may be named for a person strongly associated with Northshore education.
   In addition to the sender's name, address, and phone number, nominations must include an explanation, in 50 words or less, of why the suggested name should be considered for the school.
   Nominations should be sent to the Northshore School District, Communications Department, 18315 Bothell Way NE, Bothell, WA 98011 by Oct. 8. A community-based committee, headed by parent Cindy Salter of Woodinville, begins meeting Oct. 9 to review the recommendations.
   The person submitting the winning name for the junior high will receive a piece of original art created by one of the school's new students.
