Garmin International is looking for four collegiate anglers to complete the Garmin College Team for the 2019 bass-tournament season. The electronics manufacturer is partnering with the Association of College Anglers and the Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series.

Garmin is offering new team members $1,000 in products and a 45 percent discount on orders of additional Garmin electronics. Returning members receive $500 in products and the discount. Each angler on the team receives Garmin apparel and decals for the season. The application deadline is today.

To be selected, college anglers must have a boat. They must post twice a month on social media promoting Garmin products, display Garmin decals on their boats and vehicles at tournaments, and have the company logo on their jerseys. Each team needs to fish a total of three college events during 2019, and one must be part of the Bass Pro Shops series.

Garmin will announce the four new team members Jan. 21.
