Will be displayed on digital signage. 200 character maximum, 10 character minimum. Do not include URLs or phone numbers in the short description.

Will be displayed after short description on website and in newsletter. Include information such as where to pick up tickets and cost if fee or donation are required.

Upload image (max size 16MB)

We encourage you to upload an image related to your event. This will be shown on the digital signs and the website together with your text. The art should contain no text or minimal text. Please do NOT upload an image of a poster that contains text information describing the event — it will be too small to read and will be redundant to the event description.

Select screens for display

As described in the Guide & Use Policy , postings that are only of interest to visitors to a particular screen should be posted only on that screen. Posts of broad interest to the community should be posted on multiple screens. Please do not select schools unless you have with permission from school administrators.
