Your input is needed for an upcoming NIE project! Earlier this month, MPA sent a brief survey to Missouri’s newspapers to gauge interest in a project with the National World War I Museum to create Newspaper In Education content to be published in the spring of 2017, for the Centennial of the United States entering into WWI. About 40 newspapers responded with enthusiasm for the project – some even offering suggestions on content! But we need to hear from more of you – about 246 more of you! Please respond to DAWN KITCHELL, dawnkitchell@gmail. Link
