Cool contest

We want to make dreams come true.

The Augusta Chronicle wants to know your dream.

We're inviting readers to submit essays detailing the one dream they'd like to have come true.

We'll choose the five best and do what we can to make them happen.

Keep in mind that the chronicle won't be paying for a trip to Paris to explore the Louvre, so think about things you've always wanted to do within a quick drive of Augusta.

To enter, send a 1,000-word-maximum essay with your name, address and phone number to:

Dare to Dream
The Augusta Chronicle
P.O Box 1928
Augusta, GA 30903-1928

or e-mail erica.cline@augustachronicle.com. for more information, call lifestyles editor Erica C. Cline at 828-2946.

The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. June 6.
