What is National News Literacy Week?

This annual event underscores the vital role of news literacy in a democracy and provides audiences with the knowledge, tools and abilities to become more news literate. It also aims to inspire news consumers, educators and students to practice news literacy and to strengthen trust in news media by reinforcing the role of credible journalism. The week is presented by the News Literacy Project and The E.W. Scripps Company. 

National News Literacy Week (NNLW) will take place Jan. 24–28, 2022, and will offer a variety of ways for educators and students and the general public to get involved, virtually or in person.
