Bands of America Grand National is the competition attended every two years in Indianapolis. 2021 will be our next competition year. After taking 1st place in 2013 as the Grand Nationals Champion, the Woodlands HS Band & Guard have ranked in the top 10 for the past 13 years. The Woodlands High School Band is just one of only fourteen high schools worldwide that have received both the Sudler Flag of Honor for concert band and the Sudler Shield for marching band.
The Winter Guard is one of the top 15 Color Guards in the World and a State and National Champion. The Guard competes yearly in both the Winter Guard International and Texas Color Guard Circuit. The A Guard (Junior Varsity) is a consistent State Finalist and was the 2015 State Champion. The World Guard (Varsity) is a consistent Scholastic World Class State Finalist and World Finalist.
The Woodlands High School Band is an organization of 310 members, with four concert bands, a color guard and winter guard, as well as four percussion ensembles. Members of this group participate in many community events throughout the year in addition to their regular competitive seasons in both the fall and the spring. TWHS Band receives consistent Superior ratings in both UIL marching and concert band activities and regularly competes in the Texas UIL State Marching Band Contest.
The Woodlands community is not just a nice suburb outside of Houston, it is full of loyal football and band fans who continue to attend football games long after their children graduate. Hundreds of spectators attend football games on both the home and visitors sides of the Woodforest Bank Stadium with a seating capacity of over 9,000.
If your business targets the teen, young adult, or pre-college audience, then a TWHS sponsorship is the perfect marketing opportunity. A year-long exposure of your brand can reach this difficult to reach the audience in a highly fragmented media world. Wearing your logo or seeing it on their phones will give "acceptance" and elevate your brand.
Our band organization is completely run by parent volunteers. The directors are supported by a Band Booster Club President, Board members, and staff of a few hundred volunteers who provide meals, hospitality, chaperones, fundraising, events, publicity, marketing, transportation, props, medical, supplies, uniforms, the list is endless. Student and parent alumni often return to support the band and help year after year. Our band and guard family continues to grow as does our support for our sponsors.
