Kiwanis Club of Washington, D.C., awards the News Literacy Project a $10,000 grant
The Kiwanis Club of Washington, D.C., has awarded the News Literacy Project a $10,000 grant to support a classroom program at a public school in the District during the 2014-15 school year.
The grant will enable an under-resourced school to offer NLP’s curriculum, including visits by journalist fellows. To date, NLP has partnered with four public and charter schools in Washington.
Founded in 1917, the Kiwanis Club of Washington, D.C. is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization dedicated to serving the children of the world.
“We look forward to this partnership with the News Literacy Project in support of students in the District of Columbia,” said Brian Egger, president of the Kiwanis Club of Washington, D.C. “Kiwanis seek to improve the lives of children in D.C., and we are proud to be supporting this mission.”
