With school starting in the next couple weeks, summer vacation is drawing to a close. Before it ends, take your family’s activities to the next level with our junior reporter contest!

The week of every Third Thursday Street Festival, kids are invited to color in our Mad Libs-style newspaper and return it to The Sheridan Press. Thanks to our sponsor, the Child Development Center, the winner will enjoy two cones from the Kendrick Park ice cream stand. 

Help your kids enter the contest in three simple steps! 

  1. Pick up the special newspaper from The Sheridan Press’s booth on Main Street during the Third Thursday Street Festival on Aug. 16, or pick one up at our office at 144 East Grinnell Plaza.
  2. Let your kids’ imagination soar as they finish the stories and color the pictures. Be sure to include a name and phone number!
  3. Turn in the newspaper to The Sheridan Press by Wednesday, Aug. 22, at 5 p.m.

We will announce the next winner on Facebook on Thursday, Aug. 23.
