Kids Fishing Photo Contest
CONCORD, N.H. - Got a great photo of a kid having fun fishing? Enter it in the 2009 kids fishing photo contest sponsored jointly by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and Kidz Rule USA magazine. The contest is open to children under age 13. With their parent's permission, children are encouraged to send in their New Hampshire fishing photos. Winning photos may be the child with the biggest smile or the family having the most fun trying to catch a fish! All entries must be received by September 30, 2009.
To enter the contest, kids should email a photo along with: child's name, age, parent/guardian's name, address, phone, species of fish and where the fish was caught (if a fish is pictured), and a brief description of the fishing scene, to email@example.com or mail to: Kidz Rule USA, PO Box 834, Milford, NH 03055. Your photos may appear in an upcoming issue of Kidz Rule USA. Each child may enter the contest only once. Employees of Kidz Rule USA and its affiliates or the N.H. Fish and Game Department, and members of their immediate families, are not eligible to enter.
