Sept. 8 is International Literacy Day, established in 1965 to focus attention on worldwide literacy needs. More than 780 million of the world's adults do not know how to read or write, and more than 94 million children lack access to education.
Missouri Press has joined a national effort by the International Reading Association and NASA to encourage kids to devote an additional 60 seconds a day to literacy activities. MPA has created a feature that promotes using the newspaper to improve literacy skills for children of all ages.
To download the feature, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: literacyday.

With the anniversary to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, World War I commemorations, the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November, and more, this coming school year will be another great year for reaching out to young readers in your community.
Now is the time to start planning and Missouri Press would like to help.
If you would like to start a Newspaper In Education partnership with your schools or have a new staff person who needs a little help, we've got a training for you. We will offer a Newspaper In Education Basics workshop on Thursday, July 17 at the MPA office in Columbia.
This workshop will introduce Newspaper In Education, the goals, outcomes and how to get started. We'll share resources available to your newspaper at no cost from Missouri Press.
This NIE Basics workshop will be held from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 17. We've made it easy to commute in and out in one workday. We'll even provide lunch. There is no cost to attend but seating is limited so contact Dawn Kitchell to register your newspaper today at email@example.com or (636)932-4301.
