When summer heated up, many KidsPost readers and their families decided to visit a beach or lake to cool off. Whether they were playing lacrosse at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, or relaxing on the sand on the Outer Banks in Corolla, North Carolina, they did not forget to take a copy of KidsPost with them.

Do you want to be a part of the Summer of KidsPost? If so, here’s what we ask you to do:

Go on vacation. It could be to a place as far away as Japan or as close as Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia.

Take a copy of KidsPost with you. It could be from any day.

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

Have one of your parents fill out our online form on kidspost.­com or send it to us at KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.

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.

Have fun, and keep reading KidsPost.
