School’s out! That means it’s time for the Summer of Kidspost. Every year, we ask readers to submit pictures of their fun vacations. Take a look below at what last year’s readers did during their break from school. (Last month we asked readers to identify the locations for a chance to win a prize package. We’ll have results next week.)

Are you celebrating a special event? Are you going to summer camp? Are you visiting a new country or going to a national park? KidsPost wants to sneak in some sun with you this summer. It’s easy to join Summer of KidsPost. Here are the rules:

●Go on a trip and take along a recent copy of KidsPost.

●Get someone to take a photo of you — and siblings or other family members — holding KidsPost. Easy, right? Just make sure at least one person in the photo is between the ages of 5 and 13.

●Then fill out the form at wapo.st/summerofkidspost2018 below and attach your photo. Or mail it to KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1301 K St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. List the full name, age and home town of everyone in the photo. We also need your parent’s phone number and email address. We would love to read what made the trip memorable.

Families can submit only one photo, and it must have been taken after May 25, 2018. Entries are due by August 28. That should give you plenty of time to get out and explore.

At the end of the summer, three randomly selected families that have sent in photos will receive books and KidsPost goodies.
