Got Twitter? Tweet #DigUtica until Jan 28

The Utica Sentinel on microfilm.
Are you tweeting? We hope you are with #DigUtica so your tweet counts as a vote to digitize The Utica Sentinel.

Voting for the 2017 Michigan Newspaper Grant Program winning newspaper using Twitter continues until January 28. 

Compose a message and be sure to include #DigUtica to make your vote/tweet count for The Utica Sentinel to win. Voting using Michigan-theme postcards also continues. Each postcard counts as 10 votes.

Free postcards, already written out, are available at Mount Clemens Public Library and Sterling Heights Public Library. Pick up some postcards, go to the post office, buy some postcard stamps which are 34 cents each, affix stamps and mail. Do it really soon so the postcards make it by the contest deadline.

Postcard for #DigUtica
You can vote for your favorite newspaper as many times as you would like using either Twitter or Michigan-themed postcard and both end on January 28, 2017. For more details on the grant program and how to vote using postcards or even Twitter, see our original post for digitizing The Utica Sentinel which is one of the five finalists.

And remember, MCGG is now on Twitter under the @MCGGmichigan handle so follow us.


See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
