Help us make a difference in our community.


You know that the work of the Ed Trust is important to our industry and to our region. That is why we are reaching out to you, again. We recently sent you a mailing regarding the Ed Trust's student poster contest and enclosed was a brochure about our work. 

We hope you posted the contest poster in your business place. Please let us know if you would like additional copies, but the deadline approaches... May 1st!  Here is a link to the poster, rules and entry form on

The Ed Trust was created to help ensure there is a continuous supply of candidates capable of powering our industry into the future. We are making a difference! The Ed Trust/PPI Career Fairs, college fairs, Student Poster Contest, WhyVizComm career program, and our social media engagement has had an impact on students. We know. They have said so. They have given us feedback that they are considering careers in print. Without these programs, students would not have any exposure to the diversity of jobs and skills required. 

The Ed Trust is doing this work for YOU - bringing you candidates for internships, entry-level positions, and management development. We ask that you support the Ed Trust's work with a DONATION, so we can continue these programs.
