Pioneer is the nation’s leading manufacturer of athletic field marking paint and equipment. Its products are used by more than 22,000 high schools, colleges and professional athletic organizations throughout North America.

Understanding that excellence in athletic field maintenance goes unrecognized, Pioneer created the Fields of Excellence Award Program in 1998 to honor outstanding athletic fields and the hard-working crews who diligently maintain them. To date, the program has honored more than 530 athletic fields from around the country.

Each year, colleges, universities, high schools, and parks & recreation departments from all over the United States submit photographs, letters of recommendation and application forms. This year, a rigorous judging process yielded 100 winners from about 200 applicants.

During an awards ceremony May 10 on the football field, John Voge of Pioneer presented PHS with a certificate of recognition and a Fields of Excellence banner to display at the field. Pioneer may use a picture of the field in its publications and calendar.

Pioneer also will select two winners from an additional round of judging to receive a $1,000 scholarship to be presented to a senior on behalf of the maintenance department.
