Valentine’s Day Contest: Tell us how you met!

NEW CASTLE — We admit it. We’re just hopeless romantics here at The News.

Are you? If so, we’ve got a simple question for those of you who are dating, engaged or married:

How did you meet? You know ...

•Did you “meet cute?”

•Did you not like each other at the beginning but your love grew?

•Did you literally crash into each other on a busy street?

Share your stories with readers of the New Castle News and you can be a winner!

The News is now accepting submissions from Lawrence County residents as part of our special Valentine’s Day contest.

To enter is simple. Just tell us how you met in 250 words or less, and include a photo of you and your significant other so we can spotlight you in the newspaper and on our website.

A pair of correspondents at The News — Kali Davies-Anderson and Amanda King — will vote for the most romantic, or unique, of the bunch.

If your submission is selected, you will win some fantastic prizes, courtesy of The News.

E-mail your entries to Tim Kolodziej at tkolodziej@ncnewsonline.com. Deadline for all entries is 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7.

We look forward to reading your stories!
