Wausau classroom nomination

Recently, Wausau West had their newspaper program cut. Because of the tough economic times, our school newspaper is also in danger. Because money is so tight with many local businesses right now, it's been hard for us to find enough advertisement to raise the money be able to print all of our issues. We currently have one camera, so being able to get photos of everything that we report on is difficult. Also, many of our computers don't have the software needed to efficiently produce our paper. During layout, some of the editors literally have to wait in line to be able to make their pages. Last year, we ended majorly in debt. We are a not for profit production, so aside from limited funding from the school, selling ads and receiving donations are the only ways we get money to produce our paper. $300 could help us pay for printing our issues, buy a new camera, or purchase software for all of the computers to make our newspaper the best it can be and help maintain our journalism program for future years.
