To submit a birthday request for a chance to be nationally recognized on the TODAY show, please briefly fill out the birthday application (located below) and attach a non-returnable, sharp, medium-size, recent color photo of your loved one(s). Your submission will not be considered unless all of the information is included. Please do not send in more than one submission per celebrant.

To print out a birthday application to fill out and submit by postal mail, click here.

For consideration, please mail in the application and photo at least six weeks prior to the celebrant’s birthday/anniversary to:

Willard Scott Birthdays
TODAY show, NBC News
4001 Nebraska Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20016

OR e-mail us (with the photo attached) at willardscottbirthdays@nbcuni.com

PLEASE NOTE: Willard receives several hundred requests each week and can announce only a selected few. If your request is honored, you will receive a call from our office to confirm the date the announcement will air. If you do not get a call from us, it means your celebrant was not selected and instead, will receive a very nice congratulatory letter from Willard in the mail (so long as you fill out the form correctly). Thank you and good luck!
