Welcome to
Newspapers in Education!

Newspapers in Education is a program that promotes literacy through the use of the newspaper as an instructional aid in the classroom. The Great Bend Tribune partners with educators and local businesses to provide classroom copies for local and area teachers to use as a teaching tool at no cost to the schools or the teachers. We can help diminish the battle with literacy one classroom at a time.

For more information or to order classroom copies or curriculum guides e-mail Shonita Fox at sfox@gbtribune.com or call 620-792-1211.
