For the first time in his career, Kendric Washington has taken the title World Sign Spinning Champion at this year's competition. In a finals that featured not only former World Sign Spinning Champion Kadeem Johnson(Fort Lauderdale) and Ray Rivera(Houston) but it also included 2017 finalists Elijah Scholz(Nor Cal), Nicholas Jaramillo (Fort Lauderdale) and Kacper Krawczyk (Poland).
With his sponsored Campus Coin sign, Kendric displayed an amazing blend of athleticism, execution and technical skill, to edge out Tyler Cartwright(ATL)in a first-place tiebreaker.
Kendric worked hard preparing his choreographed routine for the event and was looking forward to everyone coming together this year in Las Vegas.
“2018 has meant a lot to me. I’ve met different franchises and have been able to see how each market works and how we come together as one team. It has been an eye-opening experience, and I couldn't be more excited for what's ahead,” Washington said. “[With winning the championship] I've learned that patience is key to unlocking your full potential. I'm focused on staying humble and working hard."

Washington plans to use his first place earnings toward his own professional development so he can make himself and AArrow better. He says his best experience working as a sign spinner was traveling to Las Vegas, interacting with AArrow employees from across the globe and winning the 2018 competition.
Congratulations to Kendric Washington as he brings home the first Sign Spinning Championship to the AArrow DMV team!
