Community Group Advertising

Big Sky Media Electronic Billboard  

The electronic billboard at Calahoo Road and Highway 16A is a full colour, double-sided billboard that features a variety of advertisements with space dedicated for Spruce Grove non-profit community groups. Community groups can post information about their various projects or events on the billboard.

There are eight spots per side per week available on the sign that give community groups the opportunity to do basic level messaging. This includes a logo or photo, phone number, web address, Social Media icon, and three lines of text with up to thirty characters per line. Please note:

  • Ads must be booked a minimum of two full weeks in advance. Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Ads will be posted Mondays by 10 a.m.) and run from Monday to Monday.
  • If community groups choose to book only one side of the board they are not guaranteed to get a specific side.
  • Ads are only up for 5 seconds at a time so it is recommended that messages be kept short and to the point while directing people to a web address and / or phone number.
  • If all community spots are booked, a community group ad (based on one side only) would be shown approximately once every four minutes which equals 360 times per day or 2,520 times per week.
