It all started with Brookville Local Schools. One of our employees lives there and wanted a yard sign for her daughter, who was involved in sports. Being a part of the Athletic Boosters, our employee made a mutually beneficial deal with them: for every custom yard sign purchased ($20 each), Awards of Excellence would donate back $5 to the boosters. That meant that if just 5 signs were purchased, the boosters would get $25 in donations. It was a hit!
We put the custom-designed signs on our website and went from there. But it didn't stop at Brookville. It went on to Eaton. Then New Paris National Trail Blazers saw the Eaton signs and wanted their own. The idea spread. This project has brought communities together in support of youth athletics and extracurricular activities, like band and color guard, and we could not be happier about it!
