Proudly Display Your Achievements
If you’ve ever been traveling through town and come across a school prominently hanging a blue ribbon, this is a signifier of academic excellence. For Illinois schools that have received the Blue Ribbon distinction, Sign Central can craft an array of flags and signage to help you spread the word of your achievement. To learn more about National Blue Ribbon Awards, keep reading.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program was founded in 1982 by the United States Department of Education. Annually recognizing outstanding public and private schools for one of two categories — exemplar testing performance or commendable progress in gap-closing — this distinction operates as an indication of model education. Being a Blue Ribbon institution often leads to increased media attention and aid for both the school and its surrounding community. Only 420 schools can be nominated for a Blue Ribbon in a given year, and schools cannot be nominated twice within a five-year frame.
Because these schools make such a great impact on their communities, we want to help amplify their work. Being a Blue Ribbon institution is a huge deal, so we partner with them to create signs that publicize their achievements. For durable exterior displays, we can craft full color vinyl banners or aluminum signs. To communicate their academic accomplishments to the student body, we have created interior display signs for schools, too. Whether you are looking for a flag, banner, or traditional sign, we are here to provide you with top-quality work.
