Ada News looks for All-Star Kid by seeking reader nominations

Ada —      The Ada News is looking for some great kids and we're confident we will find plenty of them for The Ada News All-Star Kid contest.

     According to News Advertising Director Maurisa Nelson, the newspaper is seeking nominations from the community for deserving kids.

     "We are specifically looking for students who are making a difference in our community," she said. "Whether they are volunteering  at church or helping to make the world a better place for people who need a helping hand, we would like to hear about them."

     Nomination letters  may be sent — or dropped off — at the newspaper in care of Nelson. The newspaper's address is 116 N. Broadway, Ada, OK 74820. Students should be between the ages of 13-17, and Nelson asked that the school they attend be identified.

     In January, The Ada News will name the winner and top 12 finalists. Prizes will be awarded, and the winner will be interviewed and a story published in the paper.
