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

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.

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!"
