2014 National Newspaper Week and Carrier Day Resources

The 74th annual National Newspaper Week will take place from October 5-11, 2014.

This week-long celebration recognizes the important role that newspapers play in the lives of communities large and small around the world. The theme of this year’s event is “Newspapers: The Foundation of Vibrant Communities”

National Newspaper Week also includes Newspaper Carrier Day which will take place on Saturday, October 11. This special day is designed to honour the hard-working men and women who make a vital contribution to the industry.

In order to help promote National Newspaper Week and Carrier Day, Newspaper Association Managers and Newspapers Canada produce a package of free materials for newspapers to use in their own publications. The National Newspaper Week resource kit—which includes a variety of editorial cartoons, puzzles, editorials and more—is available at www.nationalnewspaperweek.com.
