Time Inc. will underwrite publication of the first issue of Partnerships in Education Journal, scheduled to coincide with a White House conference on school-business partnerships next month. According to its editor, Don Adams, the national monthly newsletter will focus on "linkages between the schools and business, industry, the government, nonprofits, and the public sector."

Mr. Adams says he hopes the newsletter will "continue the legacy" of the magazine Pro Education, of which he was the founding editor in 1983. Like Pro Education, which was discontinued in May when its sponsoring company ceased operations, the new publication will provide a "nuts-and-bolts kind of reading," with ample listings of resources, comments Mr. Adams. With shorter articles, he adds, the newsletter will read more quickly than did Pro Education.

Calling Time Inc. "a longtime 'partner' with education," Mr. Adams said its grant would "facilitate coverage" of the Fourth National Symposium on Partnerships in Education, to be held in Washington Oct. 29 to Nov. 1. The first issue of Partnerships in Education Journal will be distributed to delegates at the symposium, sponsored annually by the White House.

To be published on a September through May schedule, Partnerships in Education Journal is available on a

subscription basis at $13.50 per year, payable to InfoMedia Communications, 1132 Gershwin Dr., Largo, Fla. 34641.

Another new publication, Kid's World Tribune, appeared in April in San Diego and is being issued nationally this fall. With the aim of "encouraging a child's self-worth," in the words of its publisher, John Peter Abt, the newspaper offers fiction, fact, art, games, and contests.

Mr. Abt says that Kid's World Tribune is meant "to entertain and encourage children to read for pleasure." Printing stories and poems written by children along with regular features by staff writers, the paper strives to create in children a "positive feeling of self by response and involvement."

A subscription to the monthly paper costs $12 per year; address correspondence to Kid's World Tribune, Subscriptions, P.O. Box 4277, Leucadia, Calif. 92024.

The Association for Library Service to Children has invited librarians, teachers, parents, and children to suggest nominees for its 1989 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award.

The award recognizes an author or illustrator "whose books, published in the United States, have over a period of years made a substantial and

lasting contribution to literature for children." In addition to Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House on the Prairie series, recipients of the award include E.B. White, Beverly Cleary, Theodor Geisel ("Dr. Seuss"), Maurice Sendak, and Jean Fritz.

Authors and artists suggested for the award must meet the following requirements:

Some portion of the nominee's active career in books for children must have occurred in the 25 years prior to nomination.

At least some of the books by the potential nominee must have been available to children for at least 10 years.

The author's books, by their nature and/or number, must occupy an important place in literature for American children; children must have read these books over the years and continue to request them.

In addition to the above criteria, the award committee may consider whether some or all of the books are exceptionally notable and leading examples of the genre to which they belong, and whether some or all of them have established a new type of book or new trends in books available for children.

Names of suggested nominees should be sent to: Anita Silvey, Editor in Chief, The Horn Book Magazine, 31 St. James Ave., Boston, Mass. 02116. The deadline is Jan. 1, 1988.--lc
