The State Marching Contest takes place in three sites and in two formats:

The Competition Site is hosted in Omaha and is purely a competition, no ratings are awarded. Bands compete in an open class event although individual class champions are announced and presented with an award. All participating bands receive a placement award and caption awards are presented for Best Percussion, Best Auxiliary, Best Music, Best Visual and Best Effect.

The Festival Site is hosted in two locations one in Lincoln and the other in Kearney. Bands are scored according to a rubric and then assigned a rating in accordance with what class they participate in. Trophies are presented to those bands earning either a Superior or Excellent rating.

Please select your PREFERRED SITE below. For bands electing to participate in the festival site, the requested site will be taken into consideration when the final site assignments are determined.

Entry Deadline is September 10th
