NLP Annual Report FY19 FINAL - Page 6

Program Highlights
The Goal
By 2022, the News Literacy Project will build a community of 20,000 practitioners
who, using NLP programs and resources, teach news literacy skills to 3 million
middle school and high school students* each year and support the adoption of
news literacy into the American education experience.
*This represents about 10% of the U.S. public school population in grades 6 through 12.
“I think more critically
and I question
the credibility of
information I hear.
We should question
the information
we take in and be
aware about what is
occurring around us
every day.”
Valeria Luquin, student at Daniel
Pearl Magnet High School, Van
Nuys, California; 2019 recipient
of NLP’s Gwen Ifill Student of the
Year award (pictured with her
teacher, Adriana Chavira)
“Scripps teams are energized
by the opportunity to partner

to educate a new generation of
media consumers so they can
be more informed and engaged
members of their communities.”
Adam Symson, E.W. Scripps Company president
and CEO
