Newspapers in Education (NIE)

Newspapers in Education

Newspapers in Education (NIE) is a joint effort between newspapers and schools to promote the use of the newspapers as an educational resource in the classroom. Using the newspaper helps teachers bring real-world application to the subjects they teach. Area businesses, civic organizations and private donors, provide sponsorship dollars toward NIE programs so that teachers may use the newspaper as a dynamic and informative teaching tool.

NIE Week, celebrated annually during the first full school week in March, recognizes the accomplishments of NIE programs across the country and around the world. Newspaper in Education programs remain a vital resource for teachers and schools, source of circulation for newspapers and foundation of the next generation of newspaper readers and subscribers.

Each day of NIE Week 2024 (March 4-8), the Florida Press Educational Services (FPES), Florida’s statewide NIE organization, will tweet about NIE and NIE Week using the hashtag #nieweek.

Please join the campaign by taking the following action steps:

  1. Follow @nie_fpes on Twitter – they’ll follow you back!
  2. Retweet the #nieweek tweets March 4-8.
  3. Tweet about your own NIE Week activities using the hashtag #nieweek – they’ll retweet you!

Thank you for helping celebrate NIE Week 2024!

For Newspapers: Sponsorship Program for NIE

Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation LogoThe PNA Foundation offers PNA member newspapers a program that gives NIE donors and potential donors a choice in making contributions to fund classroom sets of newspapers to schools. Donors have the option of sending their gifts directly to the PNA Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. Using the PNA Foundation as the recipient of gifts may allow individuals, corporations, and foundations to deduct their donations as a charitable contribution. This option is possible because your newspaper is a member of the PNA and thereby also a member of the Pennsylvania NIE coordinators’ group.
