The ONLY Newspaper Devoted to Selinsgrove (and wherever else I travel)! VANDALISM ON YOUR BLOCK? THE OSN WILL INVESTIGATE! Please email news tips to Hildelysiak@gmail.com

On July 28th, I met Malala Yousafzai. It was amazing getting to meet her! She used to live in a place where people thought girls can’t be educated. But she stood up to the government and got her education, anyway. One day, when she was on the way home from school, she was shot. After that, she moved to the U.K. and has not been able to go back to her home in Pakistan since.
I think girls’ education is so important! Without knowledge, people can’t be free. And just because someone is a girl, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be free to do the things boys can. Some people think that I can’t have a newspaper because I am a girl. That really annoys me!
So, this month, I am donating all the advertising money I collect to the Malala Fund which “works to secure girls’ right to a minimum of 12 years of quality education, particularly in the Global South.”
For information on how to advertise in the OSN email email@example.com. Advertising is $40 for one business card and includes a link on the website (which has over 700,000 views!). All the money would go to the fund. Just click on the link below and email a picture of the business card to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be in the September issue.
For more information about Malala or to donate directly to her you can go to https://www.malala.org.
