eBuy for Education 2016 is coming soon!

The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education program's annual online auction fundraiser, eBuy for Education, is coming soon!

eBuy for Education 2016 will open April 25, 2016, and as always, we'll have lots of fun and unique items for you to bid on!

One hundred percent of funds raised will be used to provide newspapers and other educational resources to Tampa Bay area teachers and students. 

Newspaper in Education (NIE) is a cooperative effort between schools and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Tampa Bay Times to encourage the use of newspapers as an educational resource – a “living textbook”. NIE provides schools throughout Tampa Bay with class sets of the Times plus award-winning original educational publications, teacher guides, lesson plans, educator workshops and many more resources – all at no cost to schools, teachers or students.

NIE is a member of Florida Press Educational Services Inc. (FPES), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of newspaper professionals that promotes literacy, particularly for young people. FPES was founded in 1980 as Florida Newspaper in Education Coordinators, Inc.
