Young reader?s $500 ?reward



READING the Coffs Coast Advocate can be very rewarding and for Bellingen's Samantha Ingle, the reward is specifically $500. Samantha, who is a 16-year-old Bellingen High School student, is the Coffs Coast Advocate's winner of our $500 Reader Survey cash prize. Samantha's name was drawn at random from more than 1600 entries, with the schoolgirl over the moon at winning. "I've never won anything. This is fantastic," an excited Samantha said when contacted yesterday. Samantha lives with her parents on the Waterfall Way, west of Bellingen, near Thora, with her family buying the paper five days a week from their local newsagent. "I like to read about what is for sale, my horoscope and the local news," Samantha said. While the results of the Reader Survey are still being collated, Coffs Coast Advocate editor Lee McDougall said she was looking forward to gaining a clearer picture of what our community is reading. "It was a nice discovery to find a 16-year-old who is reading the Coffs Coast Advocate every day," Ms McDougall said.
