N.C. 4th-grader: "Tell me about Ohio" 

Dear people of Ohio,

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. Now I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Ohio as I work on my report.

Most of the information I get will be from books and websites.

However, the best information comes from the people who live in and love their 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 30th for our State Fair on May 17th.

I really appreciate your help and will do my best to send a thank you note to each and every person who takes the time and effort to help me with this project.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
