    Entries due by December 14, 2018.

    Write a theme about what you would like to receive for Christmas, just like Ralphie Parker did.

    Essays should be more than 20 words, but not exceed 250. Entries will be judged in four separate age groups: age 7 and under, 8-12 and 13-18. Themes will not be judged against other entries, but as stand alone entries.

    Entries can be dropped off at or mailed to: Indiana Welcome Center, 7770 Corinne Drive, Hammond, IN 46323. Grand prize winners in each category will receive a gift basket valued from $50-$150. 

    All entries must be clearly labeled with your name, address, day-time phone number and age category. Entries can be handwritten or typed.

    *All past winners are ineligible to win contests.
