Student Awards

Legacy Awards

Student awards are always tricky business.  We have so many students that are deserving, but we clearly cannot give everyone an award.  We try to strike a balance between director assigned awards, and student elected honors.
Booster Scholarship
Anonymous applications are voted on by freshmen parents. A maximum of two $1250 scholarships are awarded each year.
John Philip Sousa Award
This award is given to the most accomplished and respected member of the band program.  Positive student leadership and musical achievements are both taken into consideration.
Louis Armstrong Jazz Award
The Louis Armstrong Jazz Award is given to the most accomplished and respected member of the jazz program.
Director's Award
The Director's Award is given to an outstanding senior each spring.  Qualifications for this award will vary from year to year, but in each instance, this senior has contributed greatly to the success of the band.

Patrick Gilmore
This Gilmore Award is given to a senior that has shown exemplary commitment to the band program.
Woody Herman
The Herman Award is earned through outstanding commitment and merit in the jazz program.
Quincy Jones
The Quincy Jones Award generally goes to a senior that has shown incredible creativity, either through arranging or producing.
Marching Award
The Marching Award goes to a senior or two that has contributed greatly to the marching band.

Marching Band Awards

We have an awards potluck at the end of each marching band season.  Students vote on a number of awards, and the staff picks several as well.

Lettering In Band

Earning a sports and activities letter at BHS is a honor reserved for students that show great commitment and achievement to their favorite teams while in high school.  This application spells out the way for band students to earn a letter in band.  It IS possible for freshmen to letter, and it is NOT guaranteed that seniors will letter.  Please look over the application and plan your annual calendar accordingly.
