Students and Teachers

Newspapers in Education NIEThis section of PNA’s website is dedicated to students and teachers and how the PNA Foundation is here to help. You can find a listing of all PA College Newspapers, and useful information about How to start a Student Newspaper.

It also features important information such as the Internship Guide, which lists a variety of internship opportunities at PNA-member newspapers, including the Online Reporter Project – a unique two-day internship for college or university students enrolled in journalism or communications programs in Pennsylvania. The PNA Foundation also partners with the National Newspaper Association Foundation in the NNAF News Fellows Program.

Each year, the Pennsylvania Associated Press Media Editors (PAPME) offers the Ralph Flamminio Memorial Scholarship. Details about this scholarship should be directed to PAPME.

Sponsored by the PNA Foundation, the Student Keystone Press Awards contest recognizes high school and college journalism that provides relevance, integrity, and initiative in serving readers. Any student at any public, private or parochial Pennsylvania high school, college or university who has had his or her material published in the school newspaper may enter the contest.

The PNA and the PNA Foundation joined AT&T to host statewide “It Can Wait” campaigns, where PNA member newspapers are invited to host local contests. Winners of the local contests are then entered in the statewide contest. Entries are also encouraged from individuals from unsponsored areas.

The PNA Foundation offers valuable, affordable training at various sites throughout the state. Seminars led by nationally-recognized professionals cover topics ranging from social media, community journalism, web design, and much more! All students are invited to register for any training session offered by the Foundation. View the calendar of events for details about upcoming training sessions.

The PNA Foundation encourages members to become more involved with youth voting initiatives. The Voting Opportunities section of the website includes resources to become more engaged.

College and University news organizations are encouraged to become members of the PNA! Joining the PNA is the best way to stay on top of the latest developments in the news industry. Membership in PNA offers many benefits and will help students build relationships with their peers and professionals across the state.
