Your website should work for you, not against you. SNO sites work overtime. They’re preloaded with everything you need to deliver the news in high-definition: immersive images, story templates, multimedia capabilities. If our websites were people, they’d be drinking protein shakes and pumping iron. Just look at those muscles.
Built by journalism educators
At SNO, we’re more than just tech geeks. We’re journalism advisers, educators, writers, and news junkies. We understand the unique needs of scholastic journalism programs, and we’ve developed a WordPress solution that caters specifically to those needs.
We take care of the technology
You focus on journalism
Feel free to catch some zzz’s—our servers stay up all night so you don’t have to. Say goodbye to endless outages and technological tantrums. Your site will always be there for you when you need it. Our digital security system keeps hackers out and your content in. And if things ever do go wrong, we’ll work quickly to make them right. SNO’s got your back.
Stuck in a jam? We’ll bring the peanut butter. Our user guide is stuffed with tutorials to help you make the most of your site. Seek and ye shall find—but if ye don’t, our tech support staff will be happy to assist. We never leave the office (we’re in Minnesota; our cars are buried in SNO). Chat us, email us, or send us a singing telegram. We’ll reply to you fast.
We pledge to be your ally in journalism excellence and education. From our Best of SNO showcase, to our newsletters and forums, to our merit awards and more, we have the tools to help your program thrive. We believe that the pathway to success is paved with recognition, encouragement, inspiration, and support. Cheesy? A little. True? Indubitably.
Versatile, dynamic, intuitive
When it comes to school news programs, we know one size definitely doesn’t fit all. Maybe your “stories” look more like video broadcasts and photo essays. Maybe your news staff is passionate about sports coverage. Or maybe you’re into quality, no-frills reporting. SNO sites are designed to accommodate your needs—not the other way around. Indulge your inner scientist with infographics. Podcast your way to fame. Drag and drop like it’s hot. Feast on our customization options. No matter how you roll, we’ve got wheels for that. Vroom.
Don’t just take our word for it.
SNO has provided rock-solid, turnkey and flexible solutions and support for my students in public and private schools, from San Francisco and East Oakland to Paris, Seoul and Ha Noi, Vietnam. No matter where we are in the world, and whatever time zone that means, we can count on SNO.
SNO pushes my students to be great writers. Providing benchmarks for journalism excellence has made my young students more aware of what it means to present news and information in an entertaining, professional, and authentic manner.
Our staff had made several attempts at an online publication, but the demands of keeping the press rolling while learning a new platform were too many. Until SNO. Thank you for making advising fun again!
Support is just amazing here. The response time to your tickets is lightning fast. And the quality of the fixes avoids the silly back and forth that can plague online support. Hosting a complicated website has never been easier.
Even though we are a little high school with a little budget, we are given the same professional support as a bigger business or major newspaper.
I am so relieved to have the SNO infrastructure. Thank you for making my job as a high school journalism adviser so much more manageable.
The SNO online help and training materials are excellent, and in the unlikely event your question is not covered there, you can submit a support ticket and your question or problem will be dealt with promptly, honestly, patiently, efficiently, knowledgeably, and informatively.
Thanks again for all of your help. I know we pay for the service and yadda yadda, but you can’t put a price tag on all you’ve done for us this year!
SNO has become an indispensable part of our Trojan Journalism program.
