2019 NIE Baby of the Year Contest

2019 NIE Baby of the Year contest presented by Westport Homes


Newspaper in Education (NIE) helps promote and increase our children’s literacy by using the newspaper as a teaching tool in the classroom. Fort Wayne Newspapers has been part of the NIE program for over 35 years!

NIE partners with local organizations and businesses to offer teachers throughout Allen County the opportunity to utilize the newspaper and education supplements in their classrooms for free. These education supplements focus on topics such as literacy, financial planning, career planning and more. The cost for these deliveries is covered by the NIE program. Funding for this program is provided through an annual fundraising contest, sponsorships from local businesses and donations from newspaper readers. Those funds are used exclusively to provide newspapers to local classrooms.
