LAS VEGAS, NV – On Saturday February 17th, 2018, 20-year-old Kendric Washington from Maryland was named the 2018 AArrow Sign Spinning World Champion at the Fremont Street Experience. Washington beat out more than 100 AArrow Sign Spinners from 10 countries around the globe for the number one spot in the world. Washington received a $5,000 cash prize for first place and now holds the title of the AArrow Sign Spinning World Champion.
Washington has been working as an AArrow Sign Spinner for five years and has serviced clients such as Harris Teeter, Metro PCS, Planet Fitness, Saxbys Coffee, Verizon Wireless, Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards across Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. He has been featured in The Washington Post and was recently on several episodes of the New England Patriots All Access.
Washington 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.
