DigCit Application Deadline
Today is the last day to apply for the HS DigCit class for the 2018-2019 school year! This Digital Multimedia and Global Citizenship course is different from any other at LNC, and will provide your HS sophomore, junior, or senior with the leadership and technology skills they need to be successful in college and in life! Students collaborate on a series of technology-based projects throughout the year as a service to their school and community. If your student is interested in graphic design, video production or current events, this is the course for him/her!

Please still apply even if you're unsure if your schedule will allow it: https://goo.gl/forms/O6zaJSbh7f6Wx8Q53
