Niles North High School and Niles West High School Video Displays
Scope of Work
Sievert Electric has provided Daktronics scoreboards for Niles North High School for over 20 years. In 2015, when the Niles High School District was looking to upgrade their football scoreboards, Sievert Electric was chosen to participate in the project. The original concept was a football scoreboard with a small two line message center. During several meetings and discussions the district staff, along with the school board, decided that they wanted this investment to be inclusive for all school events at their respective stadiums.
Sievert Electric proposed a "live" video board along with a sound system that would include sports events like football, soccer and track, but also meet the needs of other events like the marching band competition, movie night after the senior prom, local youth group events, and also graduation. After an on-site demonstration of these products, all parties agreed unanimously that this would be the best investment for the schools moving forward.
The high school community is very happy with the result, and is now part of a presentation promoting Sievert Electric and Daktronics to other Sievert Electric prospects. The value of the video displays expanded beyond football games to include a wide variety of school activities.
"Chuck Pos Stadium at Niles North High School has been renovating during the past four years. The crowning renovation is the Daktronics scoreboard and video display. It clearly improves the overall appearance and environment, creating one of the finest outdoor high school athletic facilities in the area. Tom Maloney has been the most professional vendor I had the pleasure to work with during my 14 years as the Niles North Athletic Director."

"Our new basketball scoreboard, football scoreboard and video display in our stadium are absolutely stunning. Our fans and athletes will truly enjoy a college-like experience when they attend our games this season. They are excited to come out and see what new graphics will be on the video display next. They feel we have one of the best facilities in the Chicagoland area. There is no other company or sales person I trust more than Daktronics and Tom."
