Nevada Newsmakers Outreach (NNO), a nonprofit organization focusing on community learning efforts on the key issues of politics, business, health and education, held its first awards dinner on Wednesday May 9, at the Gold Dust West in Carson City. The dinner honored Senate Majority Leader Bill Raggio and Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley for their efforts to improve our communities and help our citizens become more aware of the important issues facing our State.

At the dinner, Nevada NewsMakers host Sam Shad announced that NNO would be sponsoring intern programs on the college and high school level, creating special half-hour programs on topics such as Nevada Constitution for use in K-12 and higher education classrooms and awarding scholarships for top interns. Shad stated that "This first year, the scholarship will be given in the names of Senator Bill Raggio and Speaker of the Assembly Barbara Buckley in honor of their service to the State of Nevada."

Interns with NNO will have their work featured on the Nevada NewsMakers Outreach website. Such work includes biographies of members of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of Nevada's government. Interns will also be given the opportunity to interview peers and members of various advocacy groups.

The half hour NNO programs will feature "historians like Clay Jenkinson, to bring our history alive by relating it to current events and therefore making it easier to learn these topics," Shad explained. These programs will be distributed free to interested schools throughout the state.
