Colorado Springs Students Lobby for an Electronic Message Center

The Palmer High School student council has successfully lobbied the City of Colorado Springs to have the school’s changeable-copy sign replaced by an electronic message center, reported the local Fox News outlet. The city’s sign code prohibits electronic message centers. However, the students persisted in their efforts toward “making big leaps to improve communication,” the Fox newscast reported. The students agreed to only have static messages (no scrolling messages or video) and to have timers dim the sign at night. The students collected all the money to fund the new sign.
