Activities

The Foundation conducts the annual Missouri Better Newspaper Contest to reward and encourage excellence in newspaper journalism. It operates a museum and newspaper office (circa 1850) for the general public at Arrow Rock, MO. Seminars and workshops are held on various phases of newspaper operations to improve skills of journalists. The Foundation also awards grants, awards and donations to deserving journalism students, teachers and institutions teaching journalism.

Missouri Press Foundation is supported by private contributions and memberships.
