KIDS4 Crew

WHAT is KIDS4 Crew?
KIDS4 is a unique program only found at Sun Prairie Media Center that provides area youth a chance to learn television production and media literacy. It is television BY kids, FOR kids.

WHO participates in KIDS4?
KIDS4 Registration is held in the fall. All interested candidates must register each year.  Crews will be determined in late September and participants will be notified at that time. KIDS4 is open to children in grades 4th to 8th. Students in the program are responsible for cameras, sound, lighting, editing, directing, talent and the content of their programs. Kids generally start in the KIDS4 program in 4th grade where they learn the basics of camera operation, and work their way up to Thursday Night Live (TNL), which is a live program produced by 7th and 8th graders. 

KIDS4 crews run from October through April and follow the Sun Prairie Area School District calendar. Crews meet once a week after school for an hour, with the exception of Thursday Night Live (TNL) which runs for two hours because it is a live production.  All KIDS4 crews are guided by a Sun Prairie Media Center crewleader. 

All KIDS4 crews meet at Sun Prairie Media Center, which is located in the same building as the Sun Prairie Public Library.

Participating KIDS4 crew members must pay a fee each crew year. Crew fees will be set before registration opens for this program. The Pam Steitz Scholarship is available to those who qualify. Reduced pricing is available for those who have a SPMC Memberships.
