The Newspapers in Education program can be an excellent way for your business or corporate office to get involved in education in the South Puget Sound. Custom sponsorship packages are available to fit any budget, whether you want to support a classroom, school, school district or the entire region.

The Newspaper Association of America Foundation commissioned a study* to find out if Newspapers in Education really works. The results? Students in schools with at least some NIE programs scored 10 percent better on standardized tests than students in schools that had no NIE programs.

The newspaper is an excellent tool to enhance critical thinking, increase vocabulary and improve skills in a wide variety of subjects. NIE is a strong tool for teachers seeking solid achievement for their students. In other words - NIE works!

Support your local students by becoming an NIE sponsor. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact the NIE program at 253-597.8612.
