Get involved today!

Looking to get involved on campus in a virtual world?

Join a club or organization today by clicking here: 
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b44a8a62ea3f85-student

Current students have a chance to win an iWatch or an Air Pods at the end of the Winter semester. Every student club meeting will provide students with an opportunity to win these prizes at the end of the semester (as long as they sign in with names, emails and phone numbers.) Every meeting that students attend will equal 1 entry. The frequency of meeting attendance will provide students with greater odds of winning the grand prizes and secondary prizes that will be determined later in the semester.

The drawing for the winter semester for the iWatch and Air Pods will take place at the Jack Box Games Event in April. Students who have entered by attending meetings and event do not need to be present to win. (“signup genius” entries will be the list that we are drawing from)  If they want to attend, they are welcome to be there.
Follow the www.schoolcraftconnection.com newspaper on social media to sign up at to get monthly log ins.

For a list of campus events and to sign up to participate go to:
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090B44A8A62EA3F85-student1

Current PTK members should sign up and add PTK to the end of their last name when signing up for events. All students who sign up on Signup Genius will be entered into a drawing for SC t-shirts (end of September) and will be given one entry into the end of the semester drawing for an iPad Mini or Air Pod.
