Sponsors can help newspaper education program

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Post’s Newspapers in Education program is gearing up for the new school year.

Letters will go out Monday seeking sponsors for the program, which delivers the Salisbury Post to interested teachers and their students once a week. The program also gives them access to the new SalisburyPostNIE.com website Monday-Friday during school hours.

Newspaper content can be a useful tool for educators. Teachers use the material for everything from literacy and current events to math problems and art projects.

Sponsorship levels for the school year range from $100 to $1,000, with different recognition levels for each.

All sponsors will be recognized throughout the school year in weekly Newspapers in Education print ads and online on the SalisburyPostNIE website. They also receive window clings to display showing their support for Newspapers In Education.

To launch the program in the schools on Sept. 4, sponsorship forms should be turned in at the Post by Aug. 17.

The sponsorship letters are going out to area businesses, but individuals are also welcome to support the program.

For more information, contact Brittany Williams at 704-797-4234.
