Headliners in Education

Our Mission:

Headliners in Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that engages and inspires K-12 students through journalism by connecting them with newsmakers with stories to tell. Having a journalism program available to students is a cost-efficient, high-upside way of expanding cross-curricular and authentic learning, through which all areas of study for the entire school community are enhanced.

HiE Named a Finalist in Nonprofit Excellence Awards

Every year the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network uses the Nonprofit Excellence Awards to highlight the work of organizations and employees who are making a difference.

Headliners is one of five finalists in the Small Nonprofit Excellence Award category, which, according to MNN, "recognizes a nonprofit organization with an annual budget of $250,000 or less. Despite its small size, this organization has managed to fulfill its mission and make major contributions to the populations that it serves."

Thank you to the MNN!
