Members of the High School Band competed in the A.T.S.S.B. Region 3 All-Region Band Competition. The students prepare selected music to play for a blind panel of judges. Only a few are selected to a position in one of two All-Region bands. If a student scores high enough, they advance to the Area level and then on to the State Level is they are in the top percentage in that competition. Region 3 is comprised of about 22 school districts from classifications 1A through 4A.
