EDNET NEWS RELEASES: University Marketing and Public Relations sends out a series of news releases called "EdNets" each month, aimed at parents and educators of students K-12. They can deal with just about any topic that would appeal to that audience. Previous subjects have included obesity in children, teaching children how to forgive, and helping parents make sense of the financial aid process. The releases are distributed to all newspapers in the state, as well to selected television and radio outlets, and national publications like Working Mother and Sesame Street. Of course, there is no guarantee the releases will be used, but UMPR has seen high usage of the pieces, particularly by Iowa newspapers. If you (or someone you know at the university) can talk knowledgeably about a subject that would work as an EdNet feature, please contact Gwenne Culpepper at 3-2761, or gwenne.culpepper@uni.edu.
