We wish to thank you for your interest in our scholarship competition. One high school finalist will be awarded a
$1,700 scholarship. A second high school finalist will be awarded a $1500 scholarship. One 8th grade finalist will each be awarded a $1,500 scholarship. A second 8th grade finalist will be awarded a $1275 scholarship.The scholarship money
will be paid to each student’s private teacher for future study on a band instrument or the band camp of the
student’s choosing. We will issue the check after we receive a completed W-9 form.
We have a two-step process. Applicants will provide an unaccompanied audio only recordings of their solos for the first round of the competition. Judges will only consider the quality of the recorded performance but not the quality of the media used.
Based upon those recordings, the scholarship committee will select contestants to compete in a live audition. This second round will be scheduled in March of 2024.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you!
