photoTell Local Media about High-Quality Early Education and Reading Proficiency
Policymakers and elected officials read their community newspapers. And community newspapers are always looking for news. Here are some ideas for getting covered in your local media. Call the paper or check its website for information on length limits and instructions on submission. Always include contact information.

Write a letter to the editor. Write a letter urging support for the policies and resources that support high-quality early education and reading proficiency.

Send a news release or announcement. Did a legislator visit your program? Did an early educator earn an AA or BA? Was an early educator in your program named to the dean’s list? Did your program earn accreditation or reaccreditation? Did parents and children enjoy an event? Let the media know with a news release or announcement. Don’t forget to give credit to state policies or resources where appropriate—or to thank elected officials for their support.

Invite a reporter and/or photographer to your program. Having an event? Invite the media to cover it. For instance, media often mark holidays with photographs and/or stories.

Send a photograph. Community newspapers often have a very small staff. Send a photograph and caption of an event at your program.  

Contact EEA Field Director Mike McLaughlin for more tips on getting covered in your local media.
