Young Reader

Norske Skog supports the actions of the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers to help newspapers, parents and teachers work together to create a literate, civic-minded new generation of readers all over the world. 

Highlights for 2011 included:

  • Awarding a special new “Natasa” World Young Reader prize to the small, family run Sinag printing plant in the Philippines that holds free journalism workshops, with up to 1 000 youths in addition to their families and teachers attending. The prize is named after Natasa Vuckovic Lesendric (1966-2011) who, after creating a distribution system and printing plant for the independent press in Serbia, made sure the profits supported a nationwide programme for using newspapers in education.
  • Introducing new, and very different countries like Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Ireland, to the use of newspapers in the classroom as a strong tool for improving reading abilities.
  • Creating a “Design an Ad for the 21st Century” DVD toolkit to help news papers teach the young about advertising and, through exercises that call for creating a special advertisement for Press Freedom Day on 3 May, about the importance and fragility of freedom of expression.
