(Seguin) -- The Christmas Angel today is hoping to pull in those last minute letters. Today is the deadline for the KWED Christmas Angel contest. All month long, the Christmas Angel has been encouraging kids 18 and under to submit a letter explaining why their family or member of their family is deserving of $500 cash this holiday season.
The contest is designed to illustrate the Christmas season's true spirit of giving and sharing.
As part of the contest, the winning letter will be read by the student to his or her family live on the air just a few days before Christmas. The winning letter along with photos of the family will also be printed in an upcoming edition of the Seguin Daily News. All entries must include the name of the student submitting the letter along with their address and phone number. Letters without a name or phone number will not be considered for the contest.
The winning letter will be chosen by an anonymous panel of judges not employed at Seguin Radio KWED or the Seguin Daily News.
All letters for this year's contest must be submitted by 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15 at the radio station located at 609 E. Court St.
