Our Olympic panel of well-respected adjudicators will offer professional assessments for both festival and competition participants in the area of band, drum major, percussion, color guard and dance/majorette. Awards will be given for superior and excellent ratings in both festival and contest. Contest will be awarded based on divisions. Gold Division consists of AAAA bands and larger, Silver Division consists of AAA bands and smaller. A champion, 2nd, and 3rd place will be awarded in each division as well as 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place for Percussion, Drum Major, and Color Guard per division. Additionally, a best of class will be awarded for Band, Percussion, Drum Major, and Color Guard. Our custom, one-of-a-kind grand championship trophy is a traveling trophy. This grand championship trophy will be presented annually to the best overall judged band, across both divisions, at our competition.
We are anticipating a wonderful event filled with great performances and we sincerely hope that your band will make the Legacy of Champions part of your competition plans for this fall.
