In Hannibal, a football jamboree is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday, featuring players from Palmyra, Bowling Green, Mark Twain, Highland and Clark County, in addition to Hannibal.
This is an opportunity to showcase the talents of the young people who will collectively comprise the standouts of 2012-13.
Your community newspaper offers a unique opportunity to its readers. Following the notion that our newspaper can be anything we want it to be, we extend an invitation to parents, grandparents, friends, boosters and students alike: At Friday’s jamboree, and at every event of the school year, we ask that you contribute the photos you take of your favorite students.
Long gone are the days when special photographic equipment and a professional skill level are needed to take photos suitable for newspaper publication. Also a thing of the past is the notion that only the key play of the game is noteworthy.
We have built this newspaper into a blend of reader-contributed submissions and journalist-produced content, together which balance out into a product that is a true mirror of the communities we serve.
Both in print and online, with a cell phone or camera in hand, you can contribute to the recognition afforded to your favorite students.
