Dear Valued Community Member,

I’m reaching out in hopes we can count on your support for our Newspaper in Education (NIE) program. NIE is an international effort created by educators and newspaper personnel to help develop a better educated public by starting the newspaper reading habit early.

The daily newspaper is truly a remarkable tool and we are proud to offer it to our local educators. It's a "living textbook" filled with history, science, politics, entertainment, mathematics, sports, consumer information and the arts. Because of this variety, the newspaper is a natural resource for the universal appeal needed to stimulate minds. NIE also builds an understanding of democracy and measurably improves literacy. 

As a community we need to come together and support this effort. The Montana Standard asks for your donation to help sponsor the program. We currently have many existing and new classrooms participating in our area. Your donation directly impacts the lives of local youths in our area!

Any donation amount is appreciated! You can download the donation form online HERE and mail it in or make a donation securely online at

If you have any questions about the program or the sponsorship opportunities available, please contact Tina Santifer at 406-496-5524 or

Thanks again for your generous donation!
