Techniques That Can Help You To Earn More Media Coverage

Top Back To School Stories Of The Decade


By Dorothy York, President and CEO of North American Precis Syndicate (NAPS)

Back to school season is shaping up in new ways in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many changes will be long lasting or permanent improvements to the system which will help students, teachers and families to have a better school experience with stronger academic results. Many organizations are communicating their efforts to support the education system with innovative ideas and resourceful assistance.

To help our clients find formats that are getting the best results, North American Precis Syndicate ranks the top feature news stories of the year by the highest number of placements in media outlets nationwide.  We have compiled the results to show the top feature news stories of the decade, those that have performed brilliantly, way above and beyond what is typically expected. 

The most successful stories included attractive color photos or infographics, helpful advice from experts, celebrity spokespeople, the latest statistics, results from surveys, trends, time-saving tips, money saving ideas and other helpful information.  The stories were targeting people across various demographic groups, relating to making the world a better place, protecting the health, safety and assets, of the readers, their friends and family members. 

We are passionate about working on the kinds of stories that help millions of people nationwide with the news that is potentially life saving or can improve the quality of their lives. 

To name a few, here are examples of the work from the best and brightest communications professionals, for some of the most demanding management teams at leading organizations, on the topic of going back to school:
