Why should I sponsor The Daily Astorian in a classroom?
Today's students are tomorrow's employees, customers and voters. Wouldn't you like them to be better educated about your business? The
Daily Astorian Newspaper in Education program offers you the opportunity to sponsor the North Coast's finest local newspaper to teach students about real-life issues that affect local families.
What is NIE?
Newspaper in Education is a cooperative program which teams students with newspapers. Schools get papers free through sponsors or at reduced prices. Because of budget constraints, many schools are unable to pay even the reduced rates. They need your help.
How will The Daily Astorian benefit my classroom?
DAILY EDITIONS - The Daily Astorian offers a broad spectrum of current information that is received at the beginning of everyday.
