Dear Principal, Newspaper Adviser or Guidance Counselor:
The Northern Illinois Newspaper Association, a professional organization with member newspapers throughout the region, is pleased to announce this year’s scholarship competition for graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their journalism education at the college level.
This spring NINA will award $1,800 in scholarships. Eligibility requirements and other criteria are listed on the adjoining page. We ask that you make this application form available to your student journalists.
In addition to the scholarship, each winner will receive a plaque and will be the sub- ject of an article in our association’s online newsletter.
NINA maintains this scholarship fund to encourage high school students to continue to study journalism and to promote journalism careers. As a professional organiza- tion dedicated to advancing print and online journalism education and training in northern Illinois, we are excited at the prospect of awarding these scholarships to students who show promise for careers in our profession.
As a past president of NINA, I welcome your comments and suggestions about the scholarships and how we can work together to advance journalism education at the high school level. Please feel free to contact me at 630-554-8573 or at the Ledger- Sentinel, 64 Main St., P.O. Box 669, Oswego, IL 60543 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
