Dear people of the great state of Colorado,


Hello! I am a third-grade student in North Virginia. In third grade, we do state projects and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Colorado as I work on my project.

Some of the information we get for our projects will be from books and websites, but the best information is from the people who live in each state. This is why I am writing to you. I am hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state.

It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article or any other items that would be useful.

You can mail items to the address below. I really appreciate your help!

Sincerely, Reid
