Write a Letter to Santa and Noozhawk and Cox Will Deliver It

Noozhawk, Cox are partnering to helps kids connect with St. Nick while boosting a local nonprofit group

It’s beginning to look a lot like ... time to send those letters to Santa Claus.

With Christmas rapidly approaching, Noozhawk has partnered with Cox to help local children connect with jolly St. Nick, while also giving a boost to a local nonprofit organization.

Our “Dear Santa” contest begins Saturday, with the winner to be selected on Dec. 18. Deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 14.

Children should put in their own words what they are asking from Santa this year.

All letters will be posted on Noozhawk, and the winner will receive a gift certificate for a holiday dinner at Jill’s Place 632 Santa Barbara St., as well as a gift certificate to McConnell’s Ice Cream, 201 W. Mission St.

In addition, the winner will get to select a local nonprofit organization to receive a $500 donation courtesy of Cox.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
