Music for All’s Bands of America kicks off the Grand National Championships by hosting the Indianapolis Marching Band Tournament presented by Yamaha, with the support of the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the City of Indianapolis.

"This is a way that we can extend our resources to IPS band program students and teachers to celebrate and recognize the achievements of these students and showcase them in Indianapolis' finest stadium facility at no cost to IPS, as a part of the Bands of America Grand National Championships," says Eric Martin, Music for All President and CEO.

Spirit Award

The Indianapolis Marching Band Tournament Spirit Award was created in an effort to increase awareness of music education in the Indianapolis Public Schools. Spectators are judged on their school spirit by a celebrity panel of judges, and the winning school receives a trophy and a $1,000 scholarship to be used for the school's music program.

Judging is based on four criteria: Pride, which includes cheers, banners, signs, painted faces and school color representation; Sportsmanship; Noise level (produced by a school's fans when its band is participating) and Attendance.
