Editor's note: The following is a letter received from a student who is working on a research project about Alaska. Reader responses can be mailed directly to the student's school at the following address: 974 Newport Avenue, Pawtucket, RI, 02861.
I am writing from Pawtucket, R.I. I am a seventh-grade student at Goff Junior High School. My teacher explained that firsthand information from citizens of our chosen state would be much more helpful than information we gathered in books and off the Internet. If your readers could send me some information, pictures and tourist information, it would help me so much with my project. Your readers can send information right to me at my school. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.
Seventh grader, Goff Junior
