HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

More than 600 kids from five states came out to Liberty High School Saturday for the Z-Man Scholarship Tournament.

The Z-Man Scholarship Tournament is the largest wrestling tournament in Oregon, and honors Portland Police Officer Mark Zylawy, who died in 2008.

The goal is to build positive relationships with local law enforcement.

Each child was assigned a mentor from the Portland Police Bureau.

Proceeds from the tournament go towards academic scholarships.
