Unit Media Relations

We encourage units to interact with their local media outlets.  Local community papers provide a great format to keep Scouting in the news.  Cub Scout service projects, Courts of Honor, or a special activity that your unit has done that is news worthy are appropriate topics to relay to the local media.  Promoting Scouting and the program we deliver in a positive manner is always good.  Keep the story light and always make sure that if you are highlighting a Scout that you receive permission to do so.

Here is a listing of media contacts.  Media Contacts.
