Dear Readers,

My name is Avery Hoard, and I am a third grader from Anselmo-Merna School in Merna, Neb. I am 9 years old. My class is having a States Fair and I have drawn your state to research. Our States Fair will be May 6.

I will learn about what your state flag looks like, your state flower, tree, bug, and motto. Also, famous people that come from your state, popular attractions, and what your state is known for.

I would really appreciate any help that your readers can give me. Post cards, souvenirs, pamphlets, pictures, letters, and anything else that you think would help me with my report would be fantastic! Thank you very much for your help.

Please send your information to: Avery Hoard, PO Box 68, Merna, NE 68856.
