Message from Northwestern State University 02/13/14
I am proud to announce that we have significantly increased colorguard scholarships for the Northwestern State University Demon Heat effective this coming fall.
This is the amount all incoming freshmen who make the team will receive, and the amount that students who elect to do marching band season only will receive each and every year.
2nd year: $1250/semester
Students who march both marching band and wintergard will receive this amount in their second year.
3rd year +: $1500/semester
Students entering their third year and all subsequent years will receive this amount per semester.
SL stipend: $250/semester
Section leaders will receive this additional amount per semester for the additional duties they perform.
Non-Marching members who serve the group as manager will receive this amount per semester.
I am so excited to share this information with you! This is over $11,000 for a four year college plan, just for representing the University as a member of the Demon Heat colorguard.
Auditions for the 2014-2015 team will be held on . Students do not need to prepare a routine, they will be taught a movement block, a flag block, and a routine that day to perform for the audition.

Scholarship Change 02/11/14
Several of you have voiced concern about only being able to have one member per unit apply for the scholarships and this was brought to the BOD for discussion. It was decided that we will allow more than one application per unit, but we ask that you please be judicious as to who you allow to apply. We welcome applications by any students who you feel are worthy, but to streamline the process we suggest that you try and keep it to no more than two applications per unit. However, if you feel that you have more than that that are worthy of receiving this honor, please invite them to apply.
Please remember that emailed applications are due to Randy by and all hard copies must be received or postmarked no later than and that the applicants need to be planning on being members of their college or university band or color guard for the 2014-15 school year.

Scholarship Applications & Hall of Fame Nominations 02/10/14
Also, please start thinking about nominations for the LMCGPC Hall of Fame. This is a percussion year. Please remember that shows can be nominated as well as individuals. All HOF nominations must be emailed to Randy or handed to him by. Please include a short letter telling why you think this person or show should be inducted in to the HOF.
These are two very important parts of our championship weekend so please give these issues some careful consideration. Thanks.
