The beautiful farmlands and communities of Central Pennsylvania are home to a lot of beautiful people. Readers are invited to nominate anyone over the age of 18 residing in Union, Snyder, Northumberland or Montour County. Send us a current photograph that shows the person's beauty and briefly tell us why this person should be selected. Include the subject's hometown and contact information.

Would you like to see your story or poem here? Then fire up your pens, pencils and imagination. One winning entry will be selected to appear in the fall issue of Inside Pennsylvania, which will be on newsstands in August.

Here's the assignment, in keeping with August issue's "Beautiful People" theme - we are looking for short stories or poems about something beautiful you enjoy in our region. Keep it short - 1,000 words or less - and include a title. Stories may include a photograph or piece of colorful artwork.

The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. June 30, at which time the winner will be notified by phone or e-mail. Only one submission will be selected. One entry per person, please. Send your entry, along with your name, address and phone number to:
