PNA’s “PA Connections” Newspapers for Students

The 2023 edition of Pennsylvania Connections (formerly the “Real News” newspaper) has been printed and a copy will be mailed to Pennsylvania high schools, colleges and universities in the coming weeks.   Check back soon for details on obtaining a downloadable copy of the product. 


PNA is proud to present the fifth annual local journalism project, PA Connections. With articles from more than 100 news media organizations and colleges from across the commonwealth, PA Connections highlights your most impactful and engaging stories in an easy-to-read consolidated format. Members of our staff distributed the publication to legislators at the Capitol as a reminder of the meaningful work that industry professionals do to inform and educate readers in local communities across the commonwealth.

Despite many changes over the past few years, one constant has remained: The people of Pennsylvania continue to turn to our local newspapers for credible and reliable information. We could not be prouder of the essential work that each of your organizations does every single day. Thank you for all that you do to support our industry.
