ASBDA offers its members the opportunity to present special award certificates that can be downloaded and printed from here.
(It is suggested that, as these certificates bear the ASBDA name and logo, they be reserved for occasions and honors worthy of them so as not to dilute their importance.)

***THESE CERTIFICATES ARE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE DUE TO TECHNICAL CHANGES***


Generic Student Award
This is a standard certificate that can be presented to students for a variety of accomplishments such as honor bands, chamber events, leadership, etc. The file is in word format and the text can be edited to suit the needs of the presenter.

Founding Committee Awards
The first National Organizing Committee that helped to create ASBDA consisted of three very prolific educators, all of whom made their mark in different ways. The following three certificates are named for the members of the committee and reflect their particular passions in the criteria for the award. It is highly suggested that these awards be printed on quality paper, framed, and then presented in a public setting such as a concert or community event.

The Dale C. Harris Certificate
Designed to recognize administrators, superintendents, and community leaders who demonstrate strong support and advocacy for the importance of concert band programs in the schools. Recognizing such figures publicly is a powerful tool in reinforcing the importance of music education to the administrators, lawmakers, and general public of your community.

The Louis M. Blaha Certificate
Designed to recognize college and university professors who instruct and mentor music education majors, student teachers, and young bandmasters. They provide the profession with quality music educators prepared for the task of teaching concert band in a classroom setting. This award can also be given to long time educators who devote much time and effort into mentoring young bandmasters.

The Captain James C. Harper Certificate
Designed to recognize an outstanding student leader, preferably a junior or senior, whose work ethic and leadership skills are an inspiration to their fellow musicians. The student should be a motivator and a selfless worker who is sensitive to the needs of others. Ideally, this award should not have connections to contributions during the marching band season as the focus of ASBDA is the advocacy of the concert band.
