NNW is sponsored by Newspaper Association Managers, Inc., the consortium of North American trade associations representing the industry on a state and provincial, regional and national basis. This year’s theme is “Think F1rst — Know Your 5 Freedoms!”

The aim is to applaud and underscore newspaper media’s role as the leading provider of news in print, online or on mobile devices.

“We want every newspaper in Kansas to take this opportunity to tout the importance of journalism and print newspapers to our democracy,” said Emily Bradbury, executive director of the Kansas Press Association. “Even better, you can make it local by editorializing about your newspaper’s unique relevance in your community.”
