Hosting Events

DCHS Band Boosters host 5 major contests throughout the school year. 

 

The profit from these contests help reduce the cost of your child’ s participation. Three of the hosting contest require at least one parent of each student to volunteer and work. Students who are represented with a volunteer for three hosting events will receive a credit of $100 to their band account. Credit will be applied in the spring once all three contest requirements have been fulfilled.
