Newspaper-in-Education (NIE) is an international program that is one of the most exciting educational tools available today. The Lima News provides newspapers to Northwest and West Central Ohio schools and educational programs by subsidizing 75 percent of the cost of classroom newspapers. The rest of the cost is covered by donations from readers, fundraisers and local businesses who are NIE sponsor partners in increased community literacy.
In addition to making newspapers available free to classrooms, NIE also provides supplemental materials, curriculum guides, scholastic contests and educator workshops. Our teaching materials cover a variety of subjects and are consistent with educational Common Core Standards. NIE also publishes statewide projects in partnership with other newspapers under the auspices of the Ohio Newspaper Foundation (ONF), a 501(c)(3) organization.
Through the use of the daily news, editorials, features and even advertising, students at all grade levels can learn educational concepts like math and cost comparison skills, geography and meteorology, history and current events and how they shape our world, all while improving reading and comprehension skills. NIE is a unique way for schools, businesses and the local newspaper to work together in a partnership that benefits all of us—now and in the future.
Educators can also contact NIE to arrange classroom speakers or tours of our newsroom or printing plant, or go on a virtual tour of The Lima News right now by clicking the ticket at the top of this page.
