●Get someone to take a picture of you (and siblings, cousins, grandparents) holding KidsPost.

●Have one of your parents send it to us at kidspost@washpost.com or KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. For e-mail, put “Summer of KidsPost” in the subject line.

●Include the full names, ages and home towns of everyone in the photo. Also write a sentence or two about what made your vacation special. We will publish pictures in the newspaper and on kidspost.com this summer.
