KidsPost is updating the way we accept submissions for the birthday announcements that appear in our print edition. We now have an online form that we hope will eliminate occasional missing information or confusion over names.

Instead of e-mailing KidsPost directly, have a parent go to the form that’s linked to the top of kidspost.com. Fill it out and upload a photo if you wish.

The form can also be found here: bit.ly/1817ZFs.

Birthday announcements are for ages 6 to 13 and are printed on a first-come, first-served basis. They must be submitted by an adult. We need photos at least four months ahead of publication. We need names (to be included without photos) at least four weeks before publication. The announcements do not appear on kidspost.com.
