This year’s observance of National Newspaper Week will be Oct. 4-10. “America/Canada Needs Journalists” is this year’s theme.
This 80th annual event is a recognition of the service of newspapers and their employees across North America and is sponsored by Newspaper Association Managers, Inc., the consortium of North American trade associations representing the industry. CNPA is a NAM member.
A content kit currently contains promotional ads; all available for download at no charge to daily and non-daily newspapers across North America. NNW will continue to update the kit with additional materials including editorials and editorial cartoons.
Please plan to observe National Newspaper Week by downloading these materials and devoting as many column inches as possible to reinforce the importance of Newspaper to your communities.
You can make it local by editorializing about your newspaper’s unique relevance. This can be about your duties as government watchdog, your role as a community forum and coverage of community events, publication of timely public notices, etc.
Since the principle is timeless, the materials, new and archived, remain on the website and accessible year-round as a continuing resource.
