The High Plains Marching Festival employs a six judge format. All bands will be adjudicated by: two music judges, one general effect judge, one marching judge, one percussion judge, and one auxiliary judge. All bands will receive a plaque noting their final overall rating. Outstanding percussion and auxiliary performances will earn an additional trophy. Bands wishing to perform for judges' comments only are always welcome. All bands participating on the field will be recognized in the awards ceremony at the end of the festival.

NOTE: All judges will be requested to provide both written and recorded comments for each band. Bands will be scheduled by size, but we will also do our best to honor special scheduling requests submitted in advance. The entry fee is also due by September 30, 2017, unless other arrangements are made with Peter Lillpopp. General admission is $3 for all students with a student ID $5 for adults. The concession stand at Lewis Field will be open during the festival.
