Linked! celebrates year 5

September 24, 2013

Students from Corydon Central, Crawford County, Lanesville, North Harrison and South Central are given the opportunity to participate in a one-of-a-kind, monthly publication, Linked!, during the 2013-14 school year.

Linked!, now in its fifth year, is a collaborative effort between O’Bannon Publishing Co., Newspapers in Education and the high schools to promote literacy and reading education and to teach students how newspapers function and the work that goes into creating them. Students have the chance to voice their opinions, write articles about current events and take photographs as well as use social media sites Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

“Linked! is a fantastic tool for students, their parents and the community as a whole,” Jonathan O’Bannon, president and publisher of O’Bannon Publishing Co., said. “Connecting our schools and the voices of our future is exciting.”

Advisers are Leslie Radcliff, a reporter for the Clarion News, Clarion News editor Chris Adams and Jo Ann Spieth-Saylor, editor of The Corydon Democrat. The first issue of Linked! is in today’s issues of The Corydon Democrat and Clarion News.
