National Newspaper Week 2013


Newspapers: The Cornerstone of Your Community

National Newspaper Week (NNW) is October 6-12, 2013.  This marks the 73rd year of the Week, which observes the importance of newspapers to communities large and small.  This year’s kit contains editorials, editorial cartoons, promotional ads and more that are available for download at no charge to newspapers across North America.

The theme of this year’s NNW is:
“Your Community, Your Newspaper, Your Life.”
NEWSPAPERS:  PLEASE PROMOTE National Newspaper Week heavily by downloading these materials and devoting as many column inches as possible to reinforce the importance of newspapers to our local communities.  PLEASE ALSO EDITORIALIZE LOCALLY about how your newspaper is important and relevant to your community.  This can be about your government watchdog role, investigative journalism, providing timely public notices, etc.
Following NNW, these materials will remain on the website and can be accessed by newspapers for use throughout the year since our message is timeless.
If you have questions or concerns about National Newspaper Week, or difficulty accessing any of the materials on this site, please contact the Tennessee Press Association at (865) 584-5761 or via

THANK YOU for your help in promoting National Newspaper Week 2013!
