Watchfire Signs, a manufacturer of on-premise LED signs, digital billboards, and video scoreboards, is once again offering a scholarship to recognize a graduating high school senior who develops uplifting content for a high school Watchfire video scoreboard or display.

According to the company, the Fired Up Watchfire Scholarship will contribute $500 in financial assistance toward a graduating high school senior’s higher education. The scholarship award winner will be chosen based on their excellence in creating and using digital content on a Watchfire sports display during a live event.

“The academic benefit of video scoreboards is just as important as the enhancement to the fan experience and revenue potential that displays provide. Watchfire created the Fired Up Watchfire Scholarship to reward students who develop creative skills, game production skills, and detailed knowledge of key components in a video control room. These skills often establish a career path for the students,” says Jeff Morgan, sales director of sports/indoor.

As the Official Scoreboard & Video Display Manufacturer of the National Federation of State High School Associations, Watchfire Signs says it takes immense pride in serving the high school community and giving one deserving student each year assistance in pursuing a field that they love.

To be eligible for the scholarship, student-created content must be displayed on an indoor or outdoor Watchfire sports display between Jan. 1, 2021, and April 1, 2022. Submissions may include static graphics, animations, videos, crowd prompts, advertisements, or any other content that encourages fan engagement. The content must inspire and create pride within their school.

The deadline to apply is April 13, and the winner will be announced in May 2022. Fill out the application here.
