If you’d like your child’s picture on this year’s Children’s Christmas Tree, now’s the time to apply.
One hundred names plus 25 alternates will be selected, and those parents will be notified by email.
Here are the guidelines for eligibility:
• The child must be between 2 and 6 years old as of Dec. 24, 2015, live in our Middle Georgia readership area, and cannot have been on the tree before.
• Send in just one request. If more than one child in a family is eligible, SEND ALL NAMES IN ONE EMAIL.
• Do not send a picture. A photo session will be scheduled during November.
• In the email, include: The name the child goes by, NOT THE FULL NAME (Chuck Jones, for example, not Charles Alexander Jones); the child’s birthday (including the year); the name of each parent (John and Jane Doe, not Mr. and Mrs. John Doe); and a daytime telephone number for the parents. Emails submitted without all this information will be discarded.
