You can mail items to the address below by April 30 for our State Fair on May 17. I really appreciate your help and will do my very best to send a thank you note to each and every person who takes the time and makes the effort to help me with this project.

Dear Editor,

Hello! I am a fourth-grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we do state reports and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Louisiana as I work on my report.

I am writing to you to ask you to please publish the letter below in your Letters to the Editor section of your newspaper. It enhances my learning about the state when I hear from actual people who live in and love their state!

Thank you for considering helping me with this project!

Sincerely,

Sky Eddie

Dear People of the Great State of Louisiana,

Hello! I am a fourth-grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we research a state for our State Fair, and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great State of Louisiana as I work on my report.

While we will research most of the information ourselves, we also like to get firsthand knowledge from people who live in the state. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some small items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that you think would be useful. You can mail items to the address below by April 30 for our State Fair on May 17. I really appreciate your help and will do my very best to send a thank you note to each and every person who takes the time and makes the effort to help me with this project. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

Sincerely,

Sky Eddie
