Composers wishing to compete are asked to compose an original Contest March. The three finalists will also recieve cash prizes, with a top cash prize of $300. All the pieces that make the finals will be performed Friday, March 7th, 2008 at the OBAF Opening Event. Additionally, Jagrins Music Publications will publish the winning march and reserves the rights to publish the other two finalists. Entries are due by Thursday, January 31, 2008.
