To participate fill out a contest entry form at Lunch On The Square, located in Freimann Square in downtown Fort Wayne, IN each Thursday between 11:30am-1:30pm, during the contest dates. Contest entry forms are available at the First Federal table and must be completed and dropped off at the WAJI/WLDE/WAJI-HD2 table, both located in Freimann Square.  Include your name, address and phone number along with a nominee’s name and reason for nominating.
