If you find yourself at a basketball game at Redwood Valley High School in Redwood Falls, Minn. (population 5,200), pay attention to the action on the court. Otherwise, you may get caught eyeing your phone and wind up starring on the gymnasium's 10-by-7-foot video board.
The so-called "Oblivious Cam" is just one of a number of features that have become staples at Redwood Valley indoor sporting events over the three years the school has owned and operated the board. The October 2013 installation represented the nation's first in terms of four-millimeter-resolution technology in a high school gymnasium setting, and exemplifies a growing trend of schools investing in the indoor fan experience. "As the indoor LED display market has grown and pricing has reached levels of affordability, there are an increasing number of high school athletic programs installing video boards in their gyms to create a whole new atmosphere of fan engagement, information and entertainment," says Doug Winkelmann, vice president of scoreboard sales at All American Scoreboards.
Monday, April 4th - Patty Wetterling visited Redwood Valley to tell her story to Middle School students in the morning and High School students in the afternoon.

Parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend tonight's presentation beginning at 7pm in the Estebo Performing Arts Center at RVHS.
The school board approved starting a MSHSL sponsored trap shooting team open to all 7th-12th grade students and coached by adults representing Redwood Area Community Education programs, beginning in April 2016. Orrin Estebo has generously donated $15,000 to be used over 3-5 years to help fund the program. This is another example of Orrin’s commitment to support youth in our community.
Students from 23 high schools competed in 19 skill areas on Thursday morning on the Willmar campus. Plaques were awarded for the top three places. The 350 students came from as far as Cambridge, Little Falls and Holdingford and as near as New London and Willmar.
