What is it?

Newspapers In Education (NIE) is a cooperative program that has been developed between educators and the newspaper industry, and is funded entirely by business sponsors and private donations.

Our goal is to reach all students in southeast Nebraska and beyond, teaching them how to read the newspaper, learn about their world and community, and apply what they learn to their daily lives.

The Newspapers in Education program provides over one million copies of the Lincoln Journal Star to students in Southeast Nebraska each year.
