Second Annual Mother’s Day Contest

The Newberry News is sponsoring their second annual Mother’s Day contest open to all elementary children in kindergarten through sixth grade in the Tahquamenon, Three Lakes, Engadine, Burt Township and Whitefish school systems as well as home-schoolers.

“We invite all elementary students to write a short essay about why their mother (or grandmother) is the best mother in the world,” said publisher of the Newberry News, James Diem. “The essays can be as long as they like or as short; there is no word limit involved. Hand drawn pictures are also a plus.”

There will be two winners; one K-2 and one 3-6.

All essays must be in our office by Mother’s Day, May 13. The winning essays will be printed, in the May 16 issue. Include name, grade, teacher and school.

The winning essayists will receive a prize package for themselves and one for their mother.

Essays should be mailed to Mother’s Day Contest, Newberry News, P.O. Box 46, Newberry, MI 49868, fax: 293-8815, emailed: or delivered to our office at 316 Newberry Avenue.
