The theme for the 13th Annual SBO Essay Scholarship Contest was unveiled with a poster included in the August issue of School Band & Orchestra magazine.
Music students around the country are encouraged to write a brief essay answering the question: If you were the school principal, what musical ensembles would you include in the curriculum and why?
Applicants are eligible for a share of $10,000 in scholarships for advanced music study and $10,000 in music products for their school music program. Winning school programs will receive merchandise prizes contributed by Alfred Publishing, Sabian, Ltd., Woodwind & Brasswind, and Yamaha Corrporation of America.
