Participate in News Know-how, Summer 2013

ALA seeks public libraries to participate in News Know-how summer 2013

As part of the News Know-how Program, students, grades 10-12, work with librarians, journalists and news ethicists to learn how to distinguish fact from opinion, check news and information sources and distinguish between propaganda and news in a nonpartisan manner.

Libraries will receive several benefits, including:

  • more than $50,000 worth of training and support;
  • opportunity to provide a chance for young people to work and connect with highly respected journalists from around the country and become part of a national network;
  • a stipend to give to each student who completes the project.

Proposals must be submitted by Dec. 8, 2012.

Learn more or apply for the 2013 program at the News Know-how website.
