I am a student at University Laboratory High School in Urbana, Illinois. I am working on a web page for a class project and I was wondering if I could have permission to use an image from your site. [INSERT a sentence that describes the purpose of your project and the reason why the image is desired.] I would be happy to remove the image when the project is finished at the end of the semester (INSERT the date).
