NSS WORLD SPACE WEEK LETTERS TO THE EDITORS CAMPAIGN, October 4-10, 2002 World Space Week is coming! Let your voices be heard and your words be read! The National Space Society's Board of Directors is sponsoring a Letters to the Editors campaign to increase public awareness of World Space Week, a United Nations-sponsored event "to celebrate each year at the international level the contributions of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition." This is your chance to share your enthusiasm and support space exploration, World Space Week, and your Society. Our goal is to see NSS members' letters printed in the Top 100 newspapers and magazines in the United States, and other respected publications worldwide. A list of the Top 100 newspapers can be found at http://www.infoplease.com/ipea/A0004420.html. Members who send a letter to one of these periodicals and e-mail a copy to will have their name put into a prize drawing, which will be conducted on November 1, 2002. Members whose letters are published will have five entries placed into the drawing. These prizes include VHS or DVD copies of Tom Hanks' award-winning HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon" and copies of Buzz Aldrin's latest novel The Return. The Grand Prize for this drawing will be a trip to the 2003 International Space Development Conference in San Jose, California, including full registration, airfare, and three nights' hotel accommodations, an $800 value! If you have additional questions regarding this campaign, you may address them via e-mail to Chris Pancratz or Bart Leahy . Let your voices be heard!
