Contests

Newspapers in Education (NIE) is an exciting program that engages students in learning by providing them with access to The Killeen Daily Herald. NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teaching materials are supplemented with the local newspaper.

At no cost to participating teachers, The Killeen Daily Herald’s NIE program provides copies of the print edition, access to KDHNews eEdition, 24/7, plus the opportunity for students to enter rewarding contests.

NIE allows students, from kindergarten through 12th grade, to learn core academic skills as well as make the connection between the classroom learning environment and real-life applications.

Thank you to the many individuals, corporate partners and organizations for supporting our program and making NIE possible.

The objective of The Killeen Daily Herald's NIE program is to partner with leading businesses, organizations and people to help students in our community learn the skills they need to succeed in the classroom and in life.

Why use NIE?

  • Newspapers are an adult medium. Students enjoy a feeling of importance when working with the newspaper.
  • Newspapers bridge the gap between the classroom and the "real" world outside. Motivation for reading and discussion is built in.
  • Newspapers contain something for every student--comics, sports, editorials, advice columns, and much more!
  • Newspapers provide the only up-to-date text available in print
  • Newspapers contain history as it happens

What else funds NIE?

Besides generous donations from community members, NIE holds fundraising events year-round. To see how you can get involved with a Newspapers in Education funding program or event. CLICK HERE

What's the cost?

Under the program, the Killeen Daily Herald provides the newspapers at a reduced rate, 13 cents per copy/minimum 10 copies per delivery to schools for use in their classrooms.

Teacher Testimonials

Keisha Davis - Iduma Elementary

"I am so grateful for the weekly KDH newspapers my class receives each week. They have been a valuable teaching tool and resource for my students. Since Iduma Elementary is an IB school, our students have to learn and take action in our Exhibition project this year. Each week, my students research the action others have taken and the impact of these actions on our community, nation, and world by reading the articles in the newspaper. I have also used the newspaper for math and science lessons. Thank you so much for sponsoring us with the Killeen Daily Herald. The 5th Graders in Mrs. K. Davis' class truly appreciate it!"

Tim Potts - Haynes School High

"I am currently teaching US History, Government, Geography, and Sociology. In my US History class the students use the headlines and stories in many ways. These include comparing past events with events today, and gathering stories on the history of Killeen, Bell County, Texas and the United States. In Government, we have been using the paper to track legislation, political viewpoints, the study of political cartoons, and editorials. In Geography, we use the paper to find stories about the different areas of the world we are studying and use the stories in application of history and the Geographical Themes of different areas of the world. I believe that the paper helps me to enhance the learning of students and make the courses more relevant to their lives. Thank you again for supplying us with the papers."
