Dear people of the great state of Mississippi:

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 about the great state of Mississippi.

While we will research most of the information ourselves, we also like to get first-hand knowledge from people who live in that state. This is why I am writing you.

I was hoping 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 you would think would  be useful.

You can mail items to the following address by April 30 for the state fair, which is May 18. Ellie Shuford C/O Mrs. Dodd’s Class, Charlotte Latin School, 9502 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28277.

I appreciate your help and will do my 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.

Ellie Shuford

Charlotte, N.C.
