Kids Take Over the Convo Sign-Up Sheet

DeKALB - The Northern Illinois women's basketball program is offering kids a chance to live out their dreams of being a public address announcer, DJ, reporter or even control the remote to the biggest TV in DeKalb, the Convocation Center big board.

Kids in eighth grade and under can sign up now to do their favorite job for the Huskie women's basketball game against Ball State, Saturday, Jan. 9 at 3 p.m. Participants will receive a free ticket to exciting Mid-American Conference women's basketball action, and get to try their hand at working behind-the-scenes in a top-level college basketball environment.

Whether kids want to be a PA announcer who gets the crowd in a frenzy, a DJ who spins the tunes, a junior reporter that writes a story that will be posted on NIUHuskies.com, a ball kid or a videoboard operator, `Kids Take Over the Convo' has something for everyone.

Contact NIU Director of Marketing Amanda Benzine at (815) 753-0639 or at abenzine@niu.edu with questions or to sign up.
