WHAT is KIDS-4 Crew?
KIDS-4 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 KIDS-4?
KIDS-4 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. KIDS-4 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 KIDS-4 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. 

WHEN is KIDS-4?
KIDS-4 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 KIDS-4 crews are guided by a Sun Prairie Media Center crewleader. 

WHERE is KIDS-4?
All KIDS-4 crews meet at Sun Prairie Media Center, which is located in the same building as the Sun Prairie Public Library.

COST of KIDS-4?
Participating KIDS-4 crew members must pay a fee each crew year. The Pam Steitz Scholarship is available to those who qualify.
