Sunshine Week is March 15-21

In Association News On

 

Make plans now to join news organizations across the country in observing Sunshine Week March 15-21.

Participate in the discussion about the importance of access to public information and what it means for communities.

A national Sunshine Week toolkit will be available free to Missouri Press Association members. The toolkit contains high-impact stories, a commentary piece, informational graphics and editorial cartoons, all spearheaded by The Associated Press, The McClatchy Company, USA TODAY and Gannett Co., Inc.

In addition to running nationally created materials, Missouri Press Association newspapers are encouraged to publish local Sunshine Week editorials, stories, columns, cartoons and graphics. This is an opportunity to inform readers about the role the local newspaper plays in fighting for their right to know and keeping government accountable to the public.

The Sunshine Week toolkit is a free resource available to any participant including, but not limited to, professional and student journalists working in any medium; bloggers; civic and non-profit organizations; schools; and government officials.

Please note that permission to use these materials covers only the seven days of Sunshine Week (March 15-21, 2015).

For more information, including logos, editorials and cartoons to run in your publication, visit sunshineweek.rcfp.org.

As Sunshine Week nears, more material will be added, so be sure to check back often.
