Profile 2003: A Sense of Place'
Reader-written edition needs sports stories
Ded. 11, 2002
The staff of The Meridian Star invites you to submit a story to "Profile 2003: A Sense of Place" the third in an award-winning series of reader-written special editions.
Profile 2003 comes out at the end of February, but parts of it will be printed in advance as early as mid-January.
The third section is devoted to sports and recreation.
We went through the photo archives here at the newspaper, and reproduced a handful on page B4. Do any of these photos spark a special memory for you? A championship team? A valuable lesson from a hard-nosed coach? Are you involved with your children's athletic endeavors? Are you an outdoorsman?
If so, write us a story about it. Of, if you prefer, go through your own albums and tell us one of those stories. You may also write a "Best Brag" story. Look for the applications in this week's editions.
The deadline for the "Sports and Recreation" section is Jan. 9. The special edition will be published Feb. 27.
Send your submission to: The Meridian Star/Profile 2003; P.O. Box 1591; Meridian MS 39302. Be sure to include your name, phone number and a little biographical information about yourself. Photos submitted with stories may be picked up in March.
Look for descriptions of other "Profile 2003: A Sense of Place" sections this week in The Meridian Star.
