Attention, aspiring writers!

The SBO (School Band & Orchestra) Essay Contest offers students in grades 4-12 an opportunity to earn both scholarships and musical merchandise for their school music programs. The entry deadline is December 31, 2018. For more details, or to enter, click here. (To read winning entries from last year's contest, click.)

In conjunction with the SBO Essay Contest described above, a local (Tuscola) winner from grades 5-8 and another from grades 9-12 will be selected to receive a $25 prize. The deadline for the local contest is December 1, 2018. Local contest entries must be submitted as typewritten hard copies or as email attachments to Miss Bowen. (Judges of the local contest will be well-versed in Music and/or Language Arts.) Winners of the local contest will be announced on this website, and prizes will be awarded, prior to Christmas break.

The question to be addressed in both the local and national contests (in 250 words or less) is:

What role has your music program played in bringing you closer to your school mates, friends and the community at large?

Thank you to:

all of the pep band members who played at Tuscola's second-round FB playoff game on Saturday, 11/3;

Mrs. Bennett, who provided snacks for pep band members to enjoy after their performance on 11/3;

the Kauffman and Reed families, who helped carry equipment to and from the bus after the Jr. High Band Festival (in the rain!);

and to Mrs. Craddock and the Unit #301 custodians for setting up equipment for the Veterans Assembly.
