    National News Engagement Day is today, Oct. 7. The event is meant to encourage awareness about the importance of being informed, to help people of all ages discover the benefits of news, and to educate the public about the principles and process of journalism.

    Join the effort to make staying informed a national priority. The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication is working with schools and universities; local, social, and national media; and civic, educational, and community organizations to make National News Engagement Day a success.
