Are you using them?

Journalism students from the University of Kansas are churning out good work, and the content is available with just a couple of clicks.

It is a cooperative effort between the KPA and the William Allen White School of Journalism.

The news service, called the KU Statehouse Wire Service, has annually provided from 50 to 100 stories the past three years. The service is underwritten through a grant from the Kansas Newspaper Foundation.

In the past three years, KU journalism students supplied legislative content  through the service and distributed it to media outlets throughout the state.

KNF has again committed $5,000 in scholarship money for students who excel in covering the Kansas Legislature
