Take your readers on a road trip inside your newspaper this summer and you could share in $4,000 in newspaper incentives for publishing the Newspaper In Education series Missouri Road Trip 2015: Every Hero Has a Story.
This new 11-part series, created in partnership with the Missouri Division of Tourism, will introduce Missourians who made significant accomplishments in their lifetimes and the places they once called home. Families that read the series will have the opportunity to win prizes.
For the first time, Missouri Press Foundation will award $4,000 in incentives to Missouri newspapers for participating in the project. Every Missouri newspaper member of the Missouri Press Association that publishes the complete series in print will be entered into a drawing to win: one $1,000 award, two $500 awards, four $250 awards and 10 $100 awards.
Missouri Road Trip 2015: Every Hero Has a Story is available now for publication between May 1 and Aug. 31, 2015. Rules for the newspaper incentive program are available along with a promotional ad and the story files at mo-nie.com using download code: MoRoadTrip15. Rules for the reader contest featured in the series will be available on VistMo.com/MoRoadTrip15 beginning May 1. Direct questions about the project to Dawn Kitchell.
