Watchfire Signs (Danville, IL) has announced a scholarship to recognize a high school student who develops inspiring content for high school Watchfire video scoreboards or displays. 

According to the company, the Fired Up Watchfire Scholarship will provide $500 in financial assistance to a graduating high school senior who demonstrates excellence in creating and using digital content on a Watchfire sports display during a live event. Schools install Watchfire video displays and virtual scoreboards to entertain fans, increase sponsorship revenue, and provide learning experiences for students. 

“We are looking for students who make a positive impact on school pride with their ability to fire up players, fans, students and the community using the school’s video display or virtual scoreboard at events,” said Mary Ellen Fricke, sports marketing lead at Watchfire Signs.

Eligible content must be created by the applicant and displayed on an indoor or outdoor Watchfire sports display between Jan. 1, 2019 and April 1, 2020. Submissions can be static graphics, animations, videos, crowd prompts, advertisements, or any other content that creates fan engagement.

The deadline to apply is April 17. The winner will be announced in May.
