The Sunshine Week toolkit is a free resource available to any participant including, but not limited to, professional and student journalists working in any medium; bloggers; civic and non-profit organizations; schools; and government officials (for activities related to open government only, please do not use them for inferred political endorsements).

Please note that permission to use these materials freely covers only the seven days of Sunshine Week 2020 (March 15-21). However, authors and artists may grant special use permission in cases of student newspapers, weeklies and others who may not be able to publish that week. Please contact us at with individual requests.

As Sunshine Week nears, and sometimes during the week, more material will be added, so be sure to check back often.

For inspiration on the kind of work that can be done utilizing public information, please review our FOI in Action page, and peruse the Bright Ideas collections from past Sunshine Weeks. To see what was offered in earlier Toolkits, visit The Vault.
