Newspapers are for more than just reading. Joelle Bruyere, 16, used her copy to enter the Ontario Community Newspapers Association “This Old Newspaper!?” Reader Contest! To participate in the contest, create an original item out of predominantly newspaper – 30 per cent can be used for structural integrity – and bring it down to the Fort Frances Times office, 116 First Street East in Fort Frances. Deadline for entry is 5 p.m., Thursday August 27. Then it’s the public’s turn to participate, as each entry from across Ontario is posted online for voting. The submission with the highest number of votes wins the $1,000 grand prize! There are three categories – Junior under 17, Family, and Open. The deadline is coming fast, so get your submissions in!
