Here’s your child’s chance to write and produce their own videos and podcasts by joining the one-of-a-kind KIDS-4 program! KIDS-4 is an after-school media production program run by the Sun Prairie Media Center designed for SPASD students in 4th through 8th grade.
In KIDS-4, students are trained in many areas necessary to create their own television and video productions including cameras, lighting, sound, directing, producing, writing, editing, and animation. While students work with adult staff, their creativity is unfiltered and their work is entirely their own. By creating their own media messages, students become smarter and more critical consumers of others’ media messages.
Students enrolled in KIDS-4 work after school at the Media Center once a week in ‘crews’ and their work airs on KIDS-4, a 24-hour public access station available on Charter, TDS, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV devices, as well as streaming on kids4.tv and on the free Sun Prairie Media Center app. Some projects will also air on 103.5 The Sun Community Radio.
Registration for returning crewmembers is now open. Registration for any new members will open on August 1. KIDS-4 Registration is available online at www.kids4.tv/kids-4-signup-info/. KIDS-4 will host an open house on Monday, August 14 from 4-6 PM. On that day, interested students and families will get the opportunity to tour the Sun Prairie Media Center and meet the KIDS-4 staff. The final deadline for registration submission is on Friday, September 15. Please keep in mind that registration numbers are limited for this program.
Anyone interested in the KIDS-4 program who cannot make the August 14 open house is encouraged to call 608-837-4193 to make alternate tour arrangements.
