First place letters will be published in the June 8 edition of The Pathway. First place winners also will receive a certificate and a Bible. Second- and third-place winners will receive a certificate and a book.
Decker said all letters must be in the Men’s Mission and Ministry office by May 26. Letters can be mailed to the office at 400 E. High St., Jefferson City, Mo, 65109, or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters must include name of the dad, name of the writer with address, phone number and grade in school and address the topic of “Why I Want to be Like My Dad."
Word limits for letters are: Grades 1-3, 45-75 words; grades 4-6, 100-150 words; and grades 7-12, 150-200 words.
