The Southmoore High School band took top honors at the competition, winning the Outstanding Grand Champion Award.

Before the awards were announced, the University of Central Oklahoma color guard and the Southwestern Oklahoma State University drum line offered workshops demonstrating techniques that are useful in marching and outdoor playing situations.

Next year, two Grand Champion Band Awards will be awarded: one for small class and one for large class bands.
