Registration and Entry Fees: Due to the prelims and finals format, only a limited number of performance slots are available. We cannot accept additional applications once these slots are filled. We will determine performance order by the postmark date on the application. The performance order in finals will be determined by a director’s draw at the conclusion of prelims. All applications must be submitted by the end of the business day on the first Friday in October. All applications must be validated as approved by the band director and the school principal.

For further details on entry fees, classification, competition format and rules, judging panel, and more, visit the Battle on the Border page.
