How Crew Connect Works
Daktronics Crew Connect is a free program that helps both students and educators. It's available to any school with a Daktronics video display. Here's how it works:
- An administrator fills out the initial Crew Connect Administrator form at the bottom of this page to get the school involved in the process, and Daktronics will provide a link for students to fill out.
- The teacher recommends one or two outstanding students who are skilled and enthusiastic about event production and sends them the link from Daktronics.
- The student(s) fill out the form that shows their interest in colleges or universities that have Daktronics video boards. Students can indicate the institutions they are interested in attending.
- Experienced Daktronics event producers will review the student applications and send the information to the right colleges and universities.
- Interested Colleges and Universities will reach out to the students to see if they are the right fit.
- Students can earn money and gain experience as they reach their educational goals!
The real reason for a video board.
Crew Connect is just one piece of the puzzle. DakClassroom also offers an Event Production Curriculum and Show Control – Education Edition to help schools get the most out of their video boards.
