Local businesses support education

Newspapers In Education (NIE) is a nationwide effort begun by the National Newspaper Association to promote literacy throughout our schools.
It allows teachers to use newspapers to stir the interest of today's youth by having their students read and study them.

By creating an avenue of interest in the newspaper genre, students are encouraged to be creative, form opinions, and strengthen their skills in all subject areas. NIE also allows the opportunity for everyone in the community, from local businesses to charities and other such organizations, to participate in strengthening literacy levels in local schools.

The Wilson County News' NIE program provides newspapers to classrooms in and around Wilson County. The NIE coordinator provides support to NIE teachers in the form of classroom visits, additional resources, and weekly emails.

Wilson, the life-size red apple, is the Wilson County News' NIE mascot who visits classrooms and makes appearances at community events, promoting literacy and spreading cheer.

"The 411" is the Wilson County News' youth and sports section. It highlights local youth with lots of photos, stories, and news briefs, as well as contains fun activities for youth.

Kid Scoop, an innovative and colorful activity page, is published every week in "The 411," providing fun content, as well as specific subject content useful for teachers.

"The Bandanna Gang" comic strip, Sudoku, and occasional serial stories are features that can also be found in "The 411." If you are interested in supporting the NIE program, email or call 830-216-4519.
