Awards


The Arbor Creek Middle School Band Program received two prestigious national awards this past December at The Midwest Clinic: The Sudler Cup and the Programs of Excellence Blue Ribbon Award.

The Sudler Cup is presented by the John Philip Sousa Foundation. The purpose of the Sudler Cup is to identify, recognize and honor junior high school and middle school concert band programs that have demonstrated particularly significant high standards of excellence in concert activities over a period of several years. This 34-year old award has acknowledged only 57 bands previously from Texas, North Carolina, South Caroline, Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida, Nebraska, Virginia, Hawaii, Alabama, Kansas, Illinois, Utah, and Louisiana.

The Programs of Excellence Blue Ribbon Award is presented by the National Band Association. The National Band Association is dedicated to the attainment of a high level of excellence for bands and band music. The NBA National Programs of Excellence Blue Ribbon Award recognizes quality programs of all levels. Band programs and their educators are honored regionally and nationally through this initiative. The ACMS Band is the only middle school to be recognized this year, and only the 7th middle school to be recognized in the history of the award.
