National CTE Letter of Intent Signing Day 2020

DCTC welcomes incoming students via NC3 event

Dakota County Technical College held a National CTE Letter of Intent Signing Day Thursday, February 20, 2020, in the West Commons on the college’s main campus in Rosemount, Minnesota. The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) event featured DCTC students enrolling for the 2020–2021 school year. The students participated in a signing ceremony similar to an athletic signing. The event was live-streamed on Skype.

About the event…¹

Celebrating seven years and a national movement

Just as we value athletes who commit to play a college sport, the signing day ceremony is designed to honor students who are entering a technical field and emphasize the importance of their career choice.

On the day of the event, high school students, parents, instructors, administration, counselors, industry partners, potential employers, local and government officials and the local media all come together to share in this special day.

Students join their peers to commit to their future technical program pathway to sign a Letter of Commitment to their school of choice. They are committing to attending that school once they have completed their high school career. It is truly an exciting and emotional moment for everyone involved.

Individual signing ceremonies at each participating campus are held on the same day across the country and tied together by live simulcasts from NC3’s central media hub. This allows anyone who is unable to attend and those who are just curious to share in the moment with all of the students. Truly an inspiring moment for all!
