Enter: WUSA 9 Battle of the Bands Contest


WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) — The soundtrack of a football game is the roar of the crowd, the clash of players on the field, the echo of a ref’s whistle before a game-changing call and most importantly — the marching band. 

Each hit, each first down, each touchdown is accentuated by the blast of the brass section and the rumble of the drumline. 

This season, we’re launching a Battle of the Bands contest to highlight the local high schoolers who bring stadiums to life across the DMV every Friday night.

Enter below for the chance to win a $1,000 Visa Gift Card for your school’s marching band, a scheduled appearance to perform at the 2014 National Cherry Blossom festival Parade, a pizza party for your band and a championship trophy!

So how does this work? A panel of judges from WUSA 9 will select the top nine entries. These bands will be invited to perform live during a WUSA 9 newscast and fans will be able to vote for their favorites.

The top three vote-getters from round one will advance to a second round. The band with the most votes at the end of the contest will win the above prize package and be named WUSA 9 Battle of the Bands Champion.

Important guidelines to remember: video entries must be no longer than one minute in length, must have been recorded within the past 12 months and the band director nominating his or her marching band must appear in the entry. Videos should be posted to YouTube and submitted in the form of a link.

Good luck to all local marching bands and thank you for the inspiration and talent you bring to high school football stadiums across the District, Maryland and Virginia every week!
