Editor, 

Hello! I am a third grade student in northern Virginia. My class is learning about the United States. Each third-grader is learning about a specific state, and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Nevada and wish to represent you well in my final State Fair project. 

Some of the information that we get for our projects will be from books and websites, but the best information is from the people who live in each state. This is why I am writing to you. I am hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that would be useful. 

You can mail the items to the address below. I really appreciate your help! 



Sincerely, 

Jackson
