Members newspapers of the Kansas Press Association might want to consider organizing a local team to particular in a new project sponsored by the association, the first Sunflower State Civics Games in 2020.
The Civics Games becomes the second outreach program for KPA after taking over management of the Kansas State Spelling Bee two years ago and a critical new revenue stream for the association.
The inaugural Kansas Civics Games is scheduled for April 2, 2020.
“Since this a new initiative for KPA, we hope our member newspapers will encourage their local schools to send a team to the event,” said Emily Bradbury, KPA executive director. “If you’ve got a local government or history teacher who would be interested, make sure they are aware of the games.
“Better yet, newspapers might want to sponsor a team for the games.”
