BAND AWARDS

Student Forms
DUE by MAY 1st of each school year

To recognize the efforts of our student musicians and encourage service to our community, Oakton High School Bands offer a sequence of awards: The Pin, The Letter, The (student’s Graduation Year) Numbers, and the Medallion. Each award requires 10 Points, 5 hours Community Service and volunteering at 2 Band Events. Points carry over to the next award and/or year provided all 3 components are submitted by the May 1st due date.  The Color Guard awards are merit-based and are a separate entity.

Component #1: The Points Sheet lists verifiable musical activities. After an award is given at 10 points, any extra points will carryover from year to year, only if all 3 components are submitted before the due date. Please note items requiring pre-approval by the Band Director.

Components #2 and #3: Each year, 5 hours of community service must be completed in order to get credit for your Band Award points. The hours do not have to be band related but must be documented/signed by someone other than their parent.

The student must also volunteer at 2 Band Events during the year. They should remember to sign-in and also note the adult who can verify the hours. These events can include:

  • Marching Field Lining

  • Cougar Kick Off: Selling Spirit Wear or playing in an ensemble

  • Recruiting event at the middle/elementary schools

  • Future Cougar Night

  • Student Work Days (multiple)

  • Election Day Bake Sale

  • Jammin’ Oakton Set up/Clean up (December)

  • Holiday Wonderland show “extras” (December)

  • Game of Tones Competition (spring)

  • 8th Grade Audition Days (spring)

  • Area Band days (spring)

Students are responsible for planning ahead to complete these events and obtaining proper signature/documentation if they wish to use their band points towards an award. Service must be completed before the deadline for points to accumulate. Pep Band and other Required events are not counted toward volunteering for Band Events. Other opportunities may arise during the year, but it is recommended that students be proactive. Please contact the awards chair at bandawards@oaktonbands.org if you are unsure whether an item will count towards an award.

Optional form used to verify students' participation in a private lessons; to be credited toward Award Points.
