National CTE Letter of Intent Signing Day

THURSDAY, APRIL 15, 2021

JOHN DEERE TECH VIRTUAL SIGNING | 9:00 AM
DIESEL MECHANICS VIRTUAL SIGNING | 10:00 AM

Each year, colleges around the country honor new college students who are entering a professional career or technical field through the National Technical Letter of Intent Signing Day. The event mirrors the NCAA’s National Signing Day for athletes who commit to play sports in college. This day honors those who are making a commitment to technical education. In partnership with The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), this is the first year of Signing Day at Northeast Iowa Community College, which offers a wide variety of professional career and technical programs with degree, diploma and certificate options. This year NICC is featuring our John Deere TECH and Diesel Mechanic program students that plan to enroll in the Fall 2021 semester. To ensure everyone's safety, this year's event will be held virtually.

LETTER OF INTENT: During the ceremony, students will sign a letter of intent indicating their commitment to Northeast Iowa Community College in their program of your choice to start Fall 2021.

SIGNING DAY SCHOLARSHIPS TO BE AWARDED! One lucky student in each program who attends Signing Day will receive a $500 scholarship which will be drawn live during each event. In addition, students completing a scholarship application by April 1, 2021, may qualify for many other scholarships with Northeast Iowa Community College.

This is a day to celebrate the dignity of work! High school counselors, principals, school district superintendents, and civic and business leaders will be in attendance to show their support. A large delegation of Northeast Iowa Community College faculty and staff will take part in the event to celebrate and welcome the students. Family and friends are invited to celebrate Signing Day by watching the recorded event which will be posted on social media later in the day.
