The 2012 Marching Podcast Award Winners

We enjoyed broadcasting the 2012 Marching Podcast Awards, and we are happy to give out awards to the schools listed below. I will also be contacting the band office of the winners and honorable mentions, so they are aware and can use this to promote their program. Troy Milton and Marice Bailey did the show with me, and our overlapping decisions or consensus is how we picked the winners for each category. In addition, we had other schools that we wanted to mention, but for the sake of time during the broadcast, we had to speed through our discussion and analysis.
