PRINCETON, N.J. — High school media teachers from around the country will receive free subscriptions to The Wall Street Journal Classroom Edition as part of a contest offered by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund.
The Fund, a nonprofit foundation, offered teachers the subscriptions based upon essays they wrote about how they will use the paper to teach journalism. The Classroom Edition, a co-sponsor of the National High School Journalism Teacher Awards program, will also provide subscriptions to the Teacher of the Year and eight other honored teachers. Its expanded offer this year enabled the Fund to conduct this contest.
Each essay winner will receive 30 copies of The Classroom Edition, a downloadable Teacher Guide, unlimited use of WSJclassroom.com and full subscription access to The Wall Street Journal Online.
