We are thrilled to be celebrating the Detroit Class of 2021's major milestone: graduating high school. It is not just an achievement, but a send off to their futures.
Instead of hosting an event, DCAN will be compiling videos to create a citywide compilation video that will be revealed on May 7th.
We are collecting videos of Detroit students celebrating their postsecondary decision, whether it be enrolling in a trade or technical program, attending a 2 or 4-year university, joining the military, etc.
Our hope is that this virtual campaign will serve as an extra layer of celebration in addition to any virtual Decision Day activities schools or programs are hosting individually.
We would like to invite you to participate in Detroit Decision Day by supporting us with the following:
- Encouraging students to submit a video of 30 seconds or less revealing their decision
- Submitting a video of yourself congratulating the Class of 2021 or explaining important things to consider when making a decision. We are inviting all high schools, higher education, trade programs, after-school programs, faith leaders, and government officials to submit a congrats.
Every student that submits a video will receive a $20 gift card.
To see examples, read more about how to submit video submissions, and learn how to receive a $20 gift card, visit our website linked below. The deadline for submission is Friday, April 23, 2021 at 11:59pm.
