Summer may not officially end for a few more weeks, but with everyone back in school, the reality is that we’re looking at a lot more crisp fall days than warm summer evenings.

That means that KidsPost needs fall-themed weather drawings for our daily forecast. Remember that bright colors and drawings that can reproduce well when shrunk work best in the newspaper. (Try doing your drawing on a 3-inch-by-5-inch note card.)

In order for us to consider your drawing, we need your full name, age and home town written on the back of your artwork. We also need a note from an adult (parent, guardian or teacher) giving permission for your drawing to be used. Illustrations should be sent to KidsPost Weather Art, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.

After you mail it to us, check back Monday through Thursday to see if your artwork is a perfect match for that day’s weather forecast. We’ll also be posting weather drawings in an online gallery at
