KHSAA member schools received more than $23,000 through a royalty program in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and Licensing Resource Group.
LRG is a trademark licensing company with nearly 20 years of experience managing trademark licensing programs for more than 150 colleges and universities, athletic conferences and athletic organizations nationwide.
The program was created to help the KHSAA's 279 member schools collect revenues from royalties on merchandise sold at local and national retailers featuring a proprietary NFHS logo. The officially licensed hang tags, a creation of LRG and similar to hang tags that appear on collegiate merchandise, are individually numbered and track the sale of each apparel item, as well as where it originated.
Among the national and regional retailers that belong to the LRG program are Wal-Mart, Kohl's, Walgreens, Lids, Meijer, Dollar General, Hibbett Sports, Dunham's Sports and Kroger.
