The Children’s Christmas Tree is a gift from The Telegraph to the community.
The names of the children featured on next year’s tree will be selected from requests received during the month of January 2015.
One hundred names plus 25 alternates will be selected, and those parents will be notified by email.
The guidelines for eligibility are:
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 Children’s Christmas Tree before.
Those who send more than one request per child will be disqualified. 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 2015).
In the email, include:
The name the child goes by, NOT THE FULL NAME (Chuck Jones, for example, not Charles Winthrop 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.
Email entries to Paulette Fountain at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, please put Children’s Christmas Tree 2015.
