NFHS, SMi Awards Renew Longstanding Corporate Partnership

Dec 06, 2021

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and SMi Awards have committed to a two-year renewal of their corporate partnership agreement.

Since it was founded in 1987, SMi Awards has helped thousands of schools, businesses and organizations nationwide with their award and recognition needs, including watches, rings, plaques, apparel, and other gifts and awards.

Located in Mansfield, Massachusetts, SMi Awards offers one-stop shopping through a wide variety of products and brands, including some of the world’s most beloved watches.

SMi Awards uses a silk-screening or etched medallion process for custom logo watches, ensuring the highest quality reproduction and presentation of logos. With championship rings, the customer-friendly company turns to its skilled master craftsmen to handcraft and artfully finish to the specifications of its customers. SMi Awards’ creative in-house team uses its advanced design equipment to craft some of the industry’s premier plaques.

As the official awards supplier of the NFHS through June 30, 2023, SMi Awards will continue supplying the exclusive ring for inductees in the National High School Hall of Fame – a role it has served since 2009.

“We are delighted to again extend our longstanding corporate partnership with SMi Awards,” said Dr. Karissa Niehoff, NFHS executive director. “SMi remains an admired and well-respected company within its industry and the high school space. The NFHS is proud to annually provide its Hall of Fame inductees with SMi’s remarkable rings, which are befitting of their achievements.”

Through the corporate partnership renewal, SMi Awards receives year-round benefits that include corporate partner designation in print and electronic listings, rotating advertisements on the NFHS website and a half-page advertisement in all eight editions of High School Today. SMi Awards is also permitted promotional opportunities via apps, print and video advertisements, and exhibit booth space at the annual NFHS Summer Meeting and National Athletic Directors Conference.

“SMi Awards is very pleased and honored to continue our partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations,” said Doug Dunlevy, SMi Awards president. “The core values of the NFHS directly align with our company values, which is why we've remained a Corporate Partner for the past 15 years. We could not ask for a better partner within the high school marketplace, and we are very excited for the coming years.”
