Glenbard scoreboards to carry advertising
By Michelle Manchir
Scoreboards at the four Glenbard high school campuses can become moneymakers beginning next fall following school board approval of installation of LED panels that will carry advertising at basketball and football games.
The LED screens will show ads approved by the district only during athletic events at Glenbard High School District 87’s high schools’ basketball gyms and football fields. The project is expected to bring in about $100,000 each year to the district, which will be split 80/20 with the video streaming company after the district’s initial investment of $180,000 is paid off, according to district documents.
